The Feast of the Holy Family

Pope Francis is calling on the Church, is calling on us, to witness to the reality of family – by saying no to the tendency of secular society to “automatize’ us into units that interact only with our little machines. He says “No, we interact with human beings – not just the Internet or the Cloud.” He is also calling us to let the family define itself – so that a married couple that can’t have children are welcome, as are the same sex couple and the broken marriage couple. And “the Word because flesh.” Jesus took on the messiness of human life – and even had a mother who swept floors occasionally.
