The Holy Family
How I love this beautiful sight: God clothed in the graces of childhood, God has become the child of a poor family, the joy of a humble home. I see Him between Joseph and Mary, gentle, simple, affectionate, anticipating their desires, and quite happy to make them happy. Oh, who can tell of the peace, the love, the heavenly bliss that the Infant God spread around Him? We have said everything when we have called a child an angel, but the Son of Mary was more than an angel, He was divine grace and goodness, smiling beneath the features of humanity. Holy and venerable family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, little Trinity on earth, we come to you with love and tender confidence. Make us feel the effects of your salutary assistance. Bless our families; may peace and unity of hearts flourish in our homes. Amen.
Father Huguet, s.m.
