The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph - C
We Are God's Holy Family
Jesus' parents “looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances”.
Commentators often explain this practice of people at the time traveling in group for safety reason.
However, this line also reminds us of the role of the extended family and community in each person's spiritual journey. No one walks this journey alone. We can and need to support each other. The witness of people's faith encourages us to live our faith.
We are all “looking for Jesus” every moment of our life. We can seek him together. And we can find him present in each other. We then become the holy family, where the Son of God continues to be present in the flesh.
