The lessons of the Holy Family

Today is the 6th day of Christmas! It is still entirely appropriate to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! At our house, we celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, culminating on the Feast of Little Christmas, or Epiphany on Jan. 6. Today we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family.

Grace upon grace: the incarnation of God among us— Emmanuel!

Welcome to the final days of Advent and the beginning of Christmas!

While the synoptic Gospels of Matthew and Luke present a beautiful telling of the Christmas story, I love the Gospel of John’s account. John’s Gospel is a little less narrative and a little more poetic and theological in the presentation. John’s Gospel compliments the synoptic accounts and makes us dig deeper into the Christmas story.
