The Holy Family is the ideal to which all other families should subscribe, if they hope to find joy and fulfillment in this life.
Lord, take my energies, fears and delights
Swaddled as gifts for this holiest night
Find in me merit to offer as well
May all my actions of You always tell
So who’s idea was it to create a new tradition for NOW – this crazy season of great expectations – when we are expected to accomplish a regular day’s work and then deck the halls, dodge the traffic, bake up a storm and – OH! I almost forgot – actually help our families prepare spiritually for the coming of Christ!
Expectancy of holy heart, in quiet moments set apart,
makes room for Him who came for all as tiny babe in manger stall.
