Holy Family Celebration

                                                            
First Sunday After Christmas 2012  
 
Gospel Lk 2:41-52
Each year Jesus' parents went to Jerusalem for the feast
of Passover,
and when he was twelve years old,
they went up according to festival custom.
After they had completed its days, as they were returning,
the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem,
but his parents did not know it.
Thinking that he was in the caravan,
they journeyed for a day
and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances,
but not finding him,
they returned to Jerusalem to look for him.
After three days they found him in the temple,
sitting in the midst of the teachers,
listening to them and asking them questions,
and all who heard him were astounded
at his understanding and his answers.
When his parents saw him,
they were astonished,
and his mother said to him,
"Son, why have you done this to us?
Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety."
And he said to them,
"Why were you looking for me?
Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"
But they did not understand what he said to them.
He went down with them and came to Nazareth,
and was obedient to them;
and his mother kept all these things in her heart.
And Jesus advanced in wisdom and age and favor
before God and man.
 
Greetings in the name of our Lord JESUS Christ,    
 
A THOUGHT ON “THE GOSPEL READING Luke 2:41-52
 
God has chosen each one of us for an important responsibility.  Some of you are parents with the responsibility for raising your children.  That is probably the most important work that you will ever do.  Some of you are grandparents, and you have an important role in the lives of your grandchildren.  Others of you will be parents someday.  Others of you will have opportunity to help people – children or adults – in your workplace, in your community.
 
Whatever our responsibility, let us be like Joseph and Mary – people who went to Jerusalem every year for the Passover – people who went beyond the call of duty in their worship of God – people who made God the center of their home – people who prepared their child for temptations that he or she would face – people who had a hand in God’s plan to save the world.
 
Parents generally pay vigilant attention to the type of friends
With whom their children associate,
But do not exercise a similar vigilance
Regarding the ideas which the radio, the television,
Records, papers and comics
Carry into the “protected” and “safe” intimacy of their homes.
Pope John Paul II
 
I will often get calls concerning problems couples are having in their relationships.  One of the questions I often ask is this, do you have any God committed married Christian couples in your life?  Most often not the answer is no.  We allow many of the people we know who are not people of God to influence our lives, come into the sanctuary of our homes and influence us and our children in their conversation and actions. 
 
 
In the Master’s Yoke,
 
+Archbishop Metropolitan James Salisbury Jr., OSB.
