The Perfect Reminder for a Spiritual Christmas Season
The Holy Family is depicted as refugees far from their homeland. Eventually they returned to daily life in Nazareth. Many who purchase this Holy Family tell us they have it on display year around. The depiction of the Holy Family is a spiritual reminder throughout the year of the reason for the Christmas season.
We too are called in the midst of our struggles and challenges to become members of God’s holy family. May the example of the Holy Family strengthen and enliven all of our families in our daily challenges and struggles. May we be shelter for one another and for all of those who pass through our lives. May we generously open our hearts and our homes. May our holiness spring forth from our loving service to one another.
