Imitate the Holy Family of Nazareth.

“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you."  (Exodus 20: 8 NIV)

Today is the feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. The Church puts this family up as a shining example for every family.  How do you rank your family?  Good, OK, Work-in-progress?  No matter the ranking, your family is a microcosm of God's grand Family, the Church.

Someone said to Jesus: "Lord, heal the brokenness in my family."  Jesus said to him: "My friend, don't you see that my Family is also broken? Together, we shall start healing the two." 

Remember:  Jesus submitted Himself to the authority of Joseph and Mary.  A family that prays together stays together.
