This weekend we come to the first Sunday after Christmas celebrated as the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. In the liturgical calendar it says “The Holy Family is seen as the model for the human family, the religious community and the Church itself. The celebration of the Incarnation has brought us to see God’s closeness. In the Holy Family we see the ordinariness of the life of Jesus, the simple acceptance by Mary and Joseph of the marvels of God. In the daily life of family and community we can touch the divine, we can come close to God. But we have to learn to live centred on God with respect and love for each other”.
