Bulletin December 29th 2019


Today is the feast day of the Holy Family, but also every family`s feast

day, since the Holy Family is the patron and model of all Christian

families. Today should be a huge family feast, since it is devoted

entirely to the Holy Family as a model for the Christian family life.

The devotion to the Holy Family was born in Bethlehem, together with

the Baby Jesus. The shepherds went to adore the Child and, at the same

time, they gave honor to His family. Later, in a similar way, the three

wise men came from the East to adore and give honor to the newborn

King with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh that would be

safeguarded by His family.


O God, who were pleased to

give us the shining example of

the Holy Family, graciously

grant that we may imitate them

in practicing the virtues of fam-

ily life and in the bonds of

charity, and so, in the joy of

your house, delight one day in

eternal rewards. Through our

Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
