I pray the Holy Family brings you hope, courage, and wisdom. Mary’s faith and trust in God, Joseph’s courage and commitment, and the genuine love they demonstrated for each other as they lived through many struggles. A family that was ridiculed by some in their own community, political leader ordered the baby Jesus killed, and found themselves repeatedly in situations that were less than welcoming. They defied the elders and rulers of the time, confronted false teachers and prophets, and spoke truth with passion and commitment. A family that was brought together and blessed by God yet many around them cursed and chastised them.
I pray the Holy Family brings you serenity as you and your family live through the challenges of each day.
May God bless and keep you, may His face shine on you, and may He walk with you all your days.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen
