Holy Family

Posted on

Originally delivered on December 31, 1989

Readings: Sirach 3:2-6, 12-14; Colossians 3:12-21; Matthew: 2:13-15, 19-23

We celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family.  As we gather each week, it’s truly a family reunion as everyone is together as one family of God. We are called to reflect on what the world would be like if we treated others truly as our sisters and brothers.  Family is loving, learning, sharing, and caring deeply for one another while keeping a treasured tradition which is renewed and celebrated together when we gather.  But most importantly, being family, is to be forgiving of the faults and failings of our brothers and sisters.  We are also called to recognize the family resemblance in the spirit of every person on earth.
