THE HOLY FAMILY OF JESUS, MARY AND JOSEPH DECEMBER 28, 2014
WE ARE GOD’S HOLY FAMILY
The scriptures of Israel are filled with many
stories of barren couples who were miraculously
granted the gift of children by God. Surely the
best known among these is the first reading from
today, from which Luke took inspiration when he
recounted the miraculous birth of John the Baptist to Zechariah and Elizabeth, and the more miraculous birth of Jesus to Mary and Joseph. In
each instance, we are given examples or role
models of those who trusted in God. More than
examples of those who trust, they are models of
self-surrender. They abandoned their own presuppositions and prejudices about the workings
of the world and turned their lives over to belief in
a God who can make life grow where none ought
to; a God who can turn death around into a new
and unimagined life; a God who can, today, take
a tiny child of humble parents in an insignificant
town and make him into a light for all the world.
This is what we, as God’s holy family, are called
to do each day: to trust not in ourselves and the
way we think things should be, but to open ourselves and surrender ourselves in faith to a God
of endless promise.
