"Every family should look to the icon of the Holy Family of Nazareth."
(Amoris Laetitia 30)
The Holy Family is a model for families because whilst the Holy Family was a family with special grace it was also a family with trials and despite their many trials, the family remained faithful, loving and united. Every family has particular graces and blessings and every family also has difficulties and crosses. The story of the Holy Family is full of encouragement for those who struggle in life – especially in their family life – and it enables us to see that true riches lie within our relationships and not in our abilities and possessions.
This week pray to the Holy Family asking them to help your family persevere through their trials and to thank God for all the graces and blessings your family enjoys.
