The Month of February
The Holy Family models for us what family life should embody.
Family is the foundational unit of both society and the Church and the framework that generates virtue for both parents and children. In it we find God, and learn how to connect with God and with others. The family is where love is freely given without self-interest. It is where we learn to love, to pray and to practice the gift of charity. Pope John Paul II has said, “The family, more than any other human reality, is the place in which the person is loved for himself and in which he learns to live the sincere gift of self” (Nov. 27, 2002).

1. Why worship on Sundays?
2. Why a meal?
3. Why do we worship the way we do?
