The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Eccus 3:2-6, 12-14, Ps 127:1-5, Col 3:12-21, Matthew 2:13-15, 19-23


The Holy Family was the perfect family. Our family isn’t perfect. We don’t have perfect children like Jesus. They don’t have perfect parents like Joseph and Mary. Yet I believe we love each other as much as they did, despite all our imperfections, and that’s what’s important, isn’t it? God made us in his image and God’s very nature – Trinity - is “family”. So God made us to live as family - our individual families together making up the entire family of mankind. God loves family. Cherish and love your family as a precious gift from God.
