May 4th Meditation: Mary’s Family

May 4: Mary’s Family: The Trinity on Earth

This is the year of the family.

How wonderful that we have the example of Mary and the Holy family to learn that in our ordinary lives we can find Jesus right there with us.

 

“It is only natural that the Church rejoice as it contemplates the modest home of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We read in the hymn from Matins on the feast of the holy Family:’ It is pleasing to recall the humble house of Nazareth and its slender resources. It is pleasing to tell again in 

song Jesus’ hidden life. Jesus grows up in hidden seclusion, to be trained in Joseph’s unpretentious trade. The loving mother sits beside her dear Son, the good wife by her husband, content if her loving attention can ease and comfort them in their weariness’ ” (“Marriage: a Christian Vocation”, Christ is Passing By, 22). 

Let us offer to our Mother today: A loving review of her life with Jesus, as we recite the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.
