The Holy Family reminds us that every family is called to holiness.
The serenity which the Holy Family savored on Christmas morning was fleeting. Soon the Holy Family were refugees fleeing their homeland in fear for their baby’s life. They lived as “undocumented immigrants” in a foreign land until it was safe for them to return to their home. Back in Nazareth, they entered back into the humdrum and predictability of daily life in a small town. There Jesus grew up, learning from his parents what it was like to work hard and to possess little but to have profound trust in God and to find deep, abiding joy in life in one’s family. The holiness of the Holy Family is the holiness that every family – and every member of every family – is called to experience, to cultivate, and to celebrate.
