Today is the Feast of the The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph and Fr. Bonaventure explains that the family is the core to a culture of life and saving the family from the attacks of the author of death, the Devil, is the central battle of our day. Jesus, Mary and Joseph are the exemplars of family life both in their exulted charity to which we should strive and in regard to the assaults that they survived in the form of Herod's attempt to destroy them. Let us encourage the entire human family to embrace this ideal of love and courage. Ave Maria! 1: Sir 3:2-7,12-14 R: Ps 128:1-5 2: Col 3:12-21 G: Lk 2:22-40 To Download Audio go to
