Message of the Week

Love is the Bond of the Family

The Holy Family of Jesus Mary and Joseph

We are brothers and sisters of Jesus because we are children of his mother, Mary and his Father.

God has adopted us as his very own children and has forgiven us.

As a family, God has chosen us to allow the peace of Christ to control our hearts and so we should forgive our family members when they wrong us.

We are called to love our family in imitation of the Holy Family by….

¨ Being compassionate when they suffer

¨ Being kind in all the circumstances of family life

¨ Being humble even when you know you are right

¨ Being gentle and patient with their faults and failings

Let us always thank God for the gift of the Holy Family and our own.

Flight to Egypt

The Holy Family of Jesus Mary and Joseph

Mary and Joseph responded to the warning of the Angel of the Lord.

Their acceptance of the Infant Jesus immediately changed the circumstances of their lives.

They had to flee to Egypt to protect the King of the Universe.

Can we also flee from things that harm the Godliness within us?

Can we also listen to the guidance of the Spirit of the Lord in our lives?
