Feast of the Most Holy Family

Faith Formation

From the Associate Pastor

This Sunday, December 26, we are celebrating the FEAST OF THE MOST HOLY FAMILY. Saint Joseph, Saint Mary, and Jesus are the protagonists and examples to follow on this Feast Day.

Fr. Alberto Villafan, OFM

It would be very important to take a look at our own families and ask ourselves if we are following the example of the Holy Family, if not, it is never too late to start over. The Holy Family invites all families to imitate its example to do God’s will, in the midst of so much confusion, where little by little, family and Christian values are being lost.

Living in this country is a very demanding and onerous challenge where both parents have to work to meet the economic expenses of daily life. However, do not neglect communication or dialogue between spouses. Nor neglect the moral and spiritual formation of your children; otherwise, no one will do it for you. Don’t let materialism and consumerism ruin and end your marriage and your relationship with your children. Ask for the intercession of the HOLY FAMILY so that this does not happen.

With love and respect, Padre Alberto Villafan, ofm.
