Family, the First School

Dear brothers and sisters,
Pope Francis declared 2021 as “The Year of St. Joseph & the Year of the Family.” It’s very appropriate for us to reflect and understand our family life.
    We live in a family. Even if you are living single in your house, you have a family of your own – God chose your parents to give you life; you come from a family; you created your family; God chose you to be parents for your children; your children have ties with your life; Even if you were unable to have a child, your siblings include you in a family; If you are neither married nor have children, still you belong to a  family of faith family & God’s family. Jesus came to save in and through a family – the family of Joseph, Mary and Jesus.   
   During this year of the family & year of St. Joseph, let us dedicate a time every day to reflect about our family life; and our involvement and contribution to make our family a godly family, a family that seeks the will of God always in every decision you make.
  In this weekend’s readings: Samuel’s mother consecrated her son in the temple, because she prayed and promised to God. God called him to be a prophet - a parent’s prayer and dedication of their children is always respected and welcomed by God. A godly family is welcomed by God’s family and for His mission. When John the Baptist pointed out to Jesus as the Lamb of God, his disciples asked Jesus, Rabbi where do you live? Jesus invited them to “Come and See.” Jesus invited them to His family to experience His presence. St. Joseph welcomed Mary and Jesus at the direction of God Himself. Let us seek the will of God in our family members, and experience their purpose in our family. 
   Blessings!                                                                                          Msgr. Xavier
