The Holy Family (S)

Genesis 15:1-6, 21:1-3 or Ecclesiasticus 3:3-7, 14-17; Psalm 128; Colossians 3:12-21; Luke 2:22-40

A model for families

Paul’s letter to the Colossians give us a rich picture of what family life could be like and certainly a picture of the daily life of Mary, Joseph and Jesus in Nazareth: bear with one another, forgive, pray together, be thankful and peace will reign in your home. Perhaps today we might re-read this wonderful passage very slowly, praying that our own family or community might become a little more like this, a little more like the Holy Family.
