Feast of the Holy Family

This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family,
seen as the model for the human family, the religious community, 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 of 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 a life centred on God,
with respect and love for each other.
