Father's reflection


Mt 2: 13-15, 19-23

The Father allowed His Divine Son to live this life and, as a result, elevated family life to a place within the Trinity. The holiness of the Holy Family reveals to us that every family is invited to share in God's divine life and to encounter daily life with grace and virtue. Reflect, today, upon your own family life. Some families are strong in virtue, some struggle with basic communication. Some are faithful day in and day out, some are broken and deeply wounded. No matter the case, know that God wants to enter more deeply into your family life just as it is right now. He desires to give strength and virtue to live as the Holy Family. Surrender yourself and your family, this day, and invite the Triune God to make your family a holy family. 

Lord, I do offer myself to you this day and in doing so I offer You my family.

I offer every relationship, be it good or difficult, and I offer every challenge we face.

Please come and sanctify my family, making it holy in imitation of your family in Nazareth. 

Jesus, I trust in You!
