Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Cycle A

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

Bulletin Insert for the Solemnity of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, December 30, 2022.

Description: This bulletin insert reveals how the scriptures for this Feast Day about the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph instruct us on how to have our own holy families. Sirach 3:2-6, 12-14 tells children (young and old) to “honor” and “revere” their parents.

Colossians 3:12-21 instructs us to “put on love, the bond of perfection”, and to make sure that the peace of Christ controls our hearts. To understand this scripture, replace the word “subordinate” or “submit” with “accept his loving protection”. God has put the husband in charge of providing protection for the family, which is why in the Gospel reading (Matthew 2:13-15,19-23) it’s Joseph, not Mary, who was given the dream. This includes spiritual protection, teaching holiness and leading the family to heaven. In other words: The husband is in charge of providing God’s radical love to the family.
