Feast Day of The Holy FamilyLuke 2:22-40
Today’s gospel is a glimpse of the Holy Family. Jesus is taken to the Temple to be presented to the Lord. And while there, Mary, Joseph and Jesus encounter Simeon and Anna. The prophecy is one of joy and sorrow. Just as any family encounters joy and sorrow in their life, so did the Holy Family. We must take a lesson from them. They listened to the prophecy, too it into their hearts and left it there to be pondered and unfolded for them by God. Their trust is an example we can all learn from.
Holy Family, pray for us.
