My homily for the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (Year C) as preached at the 5pm Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.
The readings were 1 Samuel 1:20-22, 24-28; 1 John 3:1-2, 21-24; Luke 2:41-52.
“Families are important to us as human beings and as believers. They are the domestic church where faith is taught and caught. Our Gospel today reminds us, however, that there is a prior call on the life of the believer: to be about the Father’s business.”
