Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph


Family Ties


There are many cold families like yours in my country. I want the Flame of Love of my heart to warm them up and others just as well. I can see that you understand this well since you are living the same reality. This is why you have compassion for me. (Mary) (November 19, 1962)


Today’s Readings: Brothers and sisters: Put on, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. (Colossians 3)


Prayer Meditation- O Lord so many families torn apart by so many things today in our culture. The family is under attack in a big way- it is hard to find anyone not going through a hard time these days. But Lord You came to be born and raised in a family- with a mother and a father and by Your Presence, the family which You created is sanctified. You have come to rescue broken families and set them free! Lord You have given us the Model and You have given us the Grace- may the family be healed through the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! May every child be wanted and may every home turn to Jesus!
