Friday Epistle for December 29, 2017

December 29th, 2017 by Gabriel Ipasu

Christmas, a Family Affair on earth and in Heaven 
           This Sunday is known as the Holy Family  Sunday, also as the Holy Name of Jesus  Sunday (the presentation and naming of Jesus). It allows us a brief look into the Lord Jesus' infancy and family life.
           Very little is Biblically reported to us about his infancy life, yet we know that our Lord lived a full human and family life with a father and a mother.
          If we could reflect on one or two aspects of  this Sunday and its readings, I would suggest family and community life as an important vessel of the covenant between us and God. The Lord Jesus did not act alone; He belonged and depended on a family, a Community and a culture. True God and true Man He was.
Blessings,
Gabriel
