This Holy Family Plaque, Colored gives us a “family portrait” of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. The Holy Family is a working family – a family of slender means but with profound trust and faith in God. This plaque is a great gift for every hardworking family celebrating Advent and Christmas.
The Holy Family Plaque – A Most Generous Labor of Love, Faith, and Hope
The Holy Family Plaque statue stands 10.6 inches tall and is composed of dolomite stone and resin. This plaque is designed to stand freely or to hang easily on any wall in home, office, school, or chapel. Cloistered sisters of a monastery in France designed, created and handcrafted this plaque in their atelier. Each sisters practices contemplation in action by prayerfully fulfilling an assigned task to guarantee completion of each plaque. How, where, and by whom the Holy Family Plaque is created signifies that it is indeed ”culturally authentic” and a most generous labor of love, faith and hope!
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.
