Feast of The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (A)
Gospel text Mt 2,13-15.19-23
The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.”
Today our hearts shrink. A short while ago Jesus Christ was born but our joy is darkened by some painful news: King Herod is seeking Jesus to kill Him. How sad! God comes to Earth to save us, and some authorities of the world want to kill Him. And this has happened many more times...
- My God, we ask You that all children may be born and receive the respect they deserve.
