Feast of The Holy Family

Jesus, Mary, Joseph we love you, be in our midst and make us one with you.

Pope John Paul II states: “The Rosary is also, and always has been, a prayer of and for the family .... a spiritual aid, which should not be underestimated”

Pope Benedict XVI states: “The Holy Rosary is not a pious practice banished to the past, like prayers of other times thought of with nostalgia. Instead, the Rosary is experiencing a new Springtime. Without a doubt, this is one of the most eloquent signs of love that the young generation nourish for Jesus and His Mother Mary.”

On the occasion of the feast of the Holy Family, let us follow the words of our Holy Father and pray the Holy Rosary in the family and for the family that peace and unity may reign in our families by allowing Christ to be the centre of our family and our lives.
