Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
You were born so that you might one day return to your Father, Lord Jesus. You were never meant to reside forever on this earth, but to return to heaven triumphant in the conquest of death. We, your faithful, shall join you in that glorious procession, united in our victory over darkness. Amen.
