Here too, we can see another aspect of the family. We know that the New Testament speaks of ‘churches that meet in homes’ (cf. 1 Cor 16:19; Rm 16:5; Col 4:15; Phil 2). A family’s living space could turn into a domestic church, a setting for the Eucharist, the pres-ence of Christ seated at its table. We can never forget the image found in the Book of Revelation, where the Lord says: ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me’ (Rv 3:20). Here we see a home filled with the presence of God, common prayer and every blessing. This is the meaning of the conclusion of Psalm 128, which we cited above: ‘Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord. The Lord bless you from Zion!’ (Ps 128:4-5).
Pope Francis
