FEAST OF THE HOLY FAMILY
Appropriately, the Church places the Feast of the Holy Family on the weekend following Christmas, unless Christmas falls on a Sunday, in which case it is celebrated December 30, as it is this year. Let us pray for our families:
Father, help us to live as the Holy Family, united in respect and love. Teach us the sanctity of human love, show us the value of family life, and help us to live in peace. We are united with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph because in your great love for us you sent your son to live in this world and to share our human experience. Help us to love each other as you love us, and to be more aware of those families in the world who struggle with poverty, war, and disease. Bring us all to the joy and peace of your eternal home. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
