Sunday, December 31, 2006Feast of the Holy Family
Happy feast of the Holy Family (on Sunday)!
This is a special feast for we families! We must remember to always pray to the Holy Family for their wisdom and holy example.
Jesus and Mary may have only had one child, but they are still our examples of holiness. We shouldn't forget the fact that they, too, lived simple, humble lives as we do. Joseph was a carpenter, Mary a homemaker.
The following is taken from the Holy Father's Prayer for Families:
Grant that love, strengthened by the grace of the sacrament of marriage,may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trialsthrough which our families sometimes pass.
Through the intercession of the Holy Family of Nazareth,grant that the Church may fruitfully carry out her worldwide missionin the family and through the family.
