Families are endlessly fascinating: so much of who we are comes from family and stays with us all our lives. Of course there is darkness, limitation, conflict, all sorts of inherited things. But there is also light, possibility, love and healing grace. It all depends on how we choose to go on from here.
Readings for the Feast
The feast of the Holy Family offers an exceptionally rich choice of readings: there are two first readings to choose from as well as two second readings. If you wish to choose thematically, then I would suggest (a) Genesis / Hebrews / Luke or (b) Sirach / Colossians / Luke.
