Sunday Gospel Warm-Up
December 28, 2023
The Holy Family
We celebrate this Sunday the Feast of the Holy Family.
Holiness does not mean an easy path. We hear in this Gospel that this child will cause great disruption and Mary will experience great pain by him. Pain and suffering is part of the package, but also with this baby comes the promise of new beginning and hope.
We are called to live this same kind of holiness. Pain and hardship will always accompany our path to holiness, but we will also, by that sacrifice, offer a goodness and peace to a troubled world.
