En el Templo con la 
profetisa Ana

Luke 2:22-40

Introductory Prayer: Jesus, you were a small child in your Mother’s arms. You were a baby who needed the protection of Joseph. You felt their goodness and love. Today I want to celebrate this love of your family. I want to enter into this love and bring it also to my own family. I believe and trust that you will help me in this.

Petition: Lord, help me discover the wonders of the love of the Holy Family.

1. The Bridegroom Is with You:. b Our God is a God of love. A family participates in this love because God is the source of the love that draws them together. The love that is so spontaneous, as well as so sacrificial, in a family, as well as so sacrificial, shows the presence of Christ’s love. Jesus makes this love spring forth. It is homage to his Father and homage to his love for us. Am I aware of Christ’s loving presence in my family? Do I strive to collaborate with his love?

b2. Family and Covenant:.b A family is a fruit of a covenant, and God is part of this covenant. God has always wanted to make man part of his family, beginning with Adam and Eve. The Holy Family showsdemonstrates forth the definitive covenant of God’s love for each of us. They bring live it forth with wonder, and, like Abraham, they put their faith totally in himGod, bonding themselves totally to his will and to his love. Each offersThey offerplay their parts in the working of God’s plan, and God will keep his promise to them, making them providential collaborators in his plan of salvation. We can be sure of God’s faithful love in the family. We can be sure that he is working his plan of salvation with faithfulness. Do I strive for unity in my family by living supernatural charity?

b3. Spiritual Inheritance:.b The Holy Family is will be a source of blessing. My family is will also be a source of blessings, even though moments of sorrow are bound to happen. When I live with faith my role in the family with faith, I will help to bring these blessings on the world. Often it is the example of Christian families that attracts others to the faith. Often the most powerful apostles, whether lay andor consecrated persons, are fruit of the strong faith that is lived in the family. A family should not be closed in on itself;. Like like the Holy Family, it has a mission. It must promote God’s message in the world through example and action. Do I give example to the members of my family? Do I strive to be an apostle both inside and outside the home?

Conversation with Christ: Lord, thank you for sanctifying family life by your presence. I want to discover you more in my family and those around me. Help me to accompany my loved ones in their moments of both joy and sorrow. You are with us, Lord. Help us to be your apostles.

Resolution: I will take a moment to listen attentively to and speak with aone member of my family who may not have received much attention from me recently.
