  • As we prepare to celebrate the World Meeting of Families in Dublin in 2018, our thoughts turn to Scripture and to its representation of families, both earthly and divine. The image of the family tree connects us with the happiness and sorrow, the successes and failures, the hopes and struggles of our forebears. It is an image that links life in all its aspects with the Word which became flesh in a family. In these short, thought-provoking reflections, Anna Burke reclaims the family tree – its root, branches and fruit – as central to our understanding of the Gospel message in today’s fast-paced and demanding world.
