Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and JosephLuke 2:41-52
Today, one day after Christmas, we celebrate the feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We hear the story of Jesus at 12 years old. Even though we move from infancy to preteens in one day, we try to acknowledge the wisdom of Mother Church. We are keeping our focus on Jesus, Mary and Joseph and their unwavering faith. Jesus is focused on His Father’s work. Mary and Joseph are focused on Jesus. Mary and Joseph give us the consummate example of how we are to live our lives, focused on Jesus. We don’t always understand. Neither did they. But they did not waver. Nor should we.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us.
