Holy Things for a Holy Family

We celebrate the feast of the Holy Family.  They took great risks and endured great suffering knowing that Jesus was gift to the world and not just for themselves.  In fact each of the Lucan visits by Jesus to the temple required his parents surrender of him.  May this remind us that every child born will someday be surrendered to reach her or his potential.  In particular will we be advocates for every child both in and out of the womb?  Through solid parenting, and a more openness to adoption we can begin to provide each child born the gift to be for another. God bestows his favor on all members of his Holy family, and we have been made holy through baptism and nourished through the Eucharist.  A Holy Family.
