February  7.  “Do we stop and think what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God?”  Gordon asked.  “Do you kids think that God is a man, or what about women then? I heard a talk the other day that explained that God, as Trinity, is a community, a group, but a community of absolute, total, tender,  life-giving love.  That is what we are challenged to be, here at home, in our family, in everything we do and in the way we care for the environment too.”   

Scripture: God said “let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth. God created man in his own image, male and female he created them.  And God blessed them.  Read from Genesis  1:20 – 2:4a. Pope Francis:  Creation of man and woman shows us the immense dignity of each person who is not just something but someone, capable of self-knowledge, self-possession and freely giving himself and entering into communion with other persons.
