In this Christmas time, we contemplate this Baby born in Bethlehem, who is Mighty God and Prince of Peace. We also recognize that he entered our world by entering a human family. With Mary and Joseph, Jesus formed the Holy Family and by doing so made family life a special opportunity of grace.
- As we rejoice is Christ’s birth, we also hear the invitation to make our families HOLY, by putting Jesus Christ at its center. The One who reconciled the world to the Father, also wants to bring his reconciliation and healing to whatever family and whatever person may be needing it today. Among all of God’s blessings, few are as precious as family life. May Christ strengthen the bonds of our families.
