Today, the Catholic Church celebrated the wonderful feast of the Holy Family -- Jesus, Mary and Joseph. They are a model family. Coming together as a family unit was certainly not what the earthly parents of Jesus must have had in their thoughts. Mary and Joseph, while not unknown to one another, never dreamed of the important role that they would play in the lives of the Newborn Savior and the entire world.
May we come to realize the important roles that each of us plays in the relationships that we have each day. One person can make a difference and usually does. Holy Family, pray for us.
