Brotherhood in creation

The Fatherhood of God

Fraternity is rooted in the fatherhood of God.13 It is not a question of a generic, undifferentiated and historically ineffective fatherhood, but of a personal, punctual and extraordinarily concrete love of God for each human being (cf. Mt 6, 25 -30)."Base Document, 10"

The Kingdom of Heaven is within you, the Lord said one day. This means that a soul in grace has within it a very rich world, because it has the capacity to have God, One and Triune, Creator of the world, of the universe, the Lord of history.
