January 10. Mr Bopape was a leading light in the community and in church. He was always there, even studied to be a deacon but Fr Neil began to have his doubts when they started to discuss his family. “How many brothers do you have?” he asked. I don’t talk about my youngest brother, he is a disgrace to the family. Since he set up a relationship with another guy I refuse to have anything to do with him. I know my mom does contact him but she does it behind my back.”
If anyone says, “I love God, and hates his brother he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 1 John 4.
Pope Francis: Children do need to be patiently taught to treat one another as brothers and sisters. This training, at times quite demanding. is a true school of socialisation. AL 195.
