The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

December 27, 2010

HOLY IN DECISIVE ACTION

I wonder what makes a family holy?

I believe there are several misconceptions of holiness and of family life.  One of them is that it is better for the child to find out what they like and believe on their own.

If we take Mary and Joseph as an example, we find that holiness is found in decisive action – especially in a family.

Think about all of the things you have learned as a parent or from being around children?

Much of those things are found in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.

So families should be decisive about being together and seen as a family because then they will be made holy.
