Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (Dec 31, 2017)

“[A]nd you yourself a sword will pierce.”

As the Church holds up to us the Holy Family as our model, we may feel a heart pierced by the reality of hurt in our families. Today, we celebrate the presence of God in our families and his healing power to reconcile all things.
