The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Support the Catholic Home Missions Appeal - Little Boy Praying Montage ImageRead

Spend time reading today's Gospel, where Jesus is found by his parents after three days in the temple. 


After reading the Gospel through again, reflect on if there was something from the Scripture that touched you, that you would simply like to keep in your heart. Did you receive a new thought or inspiration that moved you?


Today is the Feast of the Holy Family. Say this prayer for families in honor of the feast.


At the start of this New Year, make a commitment to pray together as a family every day. Make it a habit to share your prayers before meals or before bed so that you may grow in faith and love together.
