The Holy Family
Jesus Mary and Joseph
December 30, 2012

TODAY (White) Sir 3:2-6, 12-14, Col 3:12-21, Lk 2:41-52

NEXT WEEK (White) Is 60:1-6, Eph 3:2-3a, 5-6, Mt 2:1-12

Mary and Joseph looked for Jesus. In reality, this describes our own Christian living. We look for Jesus when we, like him, seek to be in God’s presence; when we, like him, choose to be obedient; when we, like him grow in wisdom. Along the way we discover that Jesus enlarges where we look for him, how we find him, and what new understanding comes to us through our encounters with him. This is the pattern of faithful Christian living that brings us to fullness of life.
