 The Holy Family Sunday – 2017


 “The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom”


As we look around us, we realize that everything needs specific conditions to grow and develop. We see that looking at plants and animals, and the same apply to our human family.

Every human being needs those special conditions to become truly what we supposed to be. We do not mean only food and shelter, only those physical and very visual things. Even those unseen: psychological and spiritual matters are very – if not the most – important for our development and growth as human.

We try to care for our education: the one done at different schools, and the other done outside of them. We care for the culture, music and art because these are the elements influencing our life.

But the basic one to all of these above is the environment of our family. Within our families we lay down the foundation for our future. It is like making the plans for and building a house. If we do not make a good and solid/strong foundation, the whole building is going to crush. Only then when the foundation is good, we have a chance that when a stormy weather will come, it will not destroy our house.

Mary and Joseph laid a good foundation for their family in “fulfilling all the prescriptions of the law of the Lord”. Therefore their “child grew and became strong filled with wisdom and the favor of God was upon him”.

Let us follow their example and let us make a good relationship with God.
