#MyMassTakeaway: Holy Family!

Today’s the Feast of the Holy Family

Find the Mass Readings here: Feast of the Holy Family, December 31, 2017.

Sooo…. I totally dropped the ball on posting my thoughts today. Mostly because I was with my family and out and about and away from my computer for the entire day. So my thoughts will have to stay inside my head!

However, my amazing blogging friends are still on top of things, and they’ve got some great thoughts and reflections to share with us all this week.

Thoughts from my blogging friends:

We all come from a family – even if we struggle with our families of origin. Over time, we create our own families, whether they are through marriage, or simply through a solid network of strong friendships. We all have our roles in our families. . . . Mary’s role was to nurture, support, and walk through her Son’s journey – sometimes gently pushing Him, other times standing by silently. Joseph’s role was to ensure the safety and security of his family, and early on, teaching his little Son a trade. Jesus’ role was to be a child, obedient, watchful, and learned. . . . The Holy Family highlights the importance of the roles in the family. Sometimes distinctly unique, and yet, interwoven so as to be dependent on each other. When one role falters, the system as a whole cannot function like a well-oiled machine. And yet, we must all pick up the slack for one another at times. . . . At all times, the Holy Family displayed love, loyalty, and commitment to their roles. What an amazing role model for all families. . . . What is your role in your family? How can you use the Holy Family as an example to emulate – and, which member of the Holy Family can you look to for inspiration as we head into a brand new year? . . . #mysundaybest w/ @rosiehill425 #mymasstakeaway w/ @tojesussincerely #sundaybest w/ @sundaybestsociety #catholicblogger #feastoftheholyfamily #catholicsofinstagram #inspiration #catholicinspiration #families #catholicmom #catholicwife #catholicfamily
