dc.description.abstractWho is the Holy Family today? It's certainly not "Leave it to Beaver," "The Waltons," or "Father Knows Best." We seem to deal with bigger and more complicated problems today.||We try to teach one another how to cope in times of crisis; how to deal with compulsions, e.g. alcohol, drugs, gambling, violence, and not to give into them; how to be truthful when even leaders resort to lies; where to look for humor rather than violence; how to build honest behavior patterns and to stand up against dishonest ones; how to be loyal to persons and institutions.|Like Joseph, we have angels who come with words of nurturing, caring, direction for our lives. They may be our spouses, children, parents, a best friend, even an enemy. Some angel messages may be "look up and yourself...hug and be hugged.....give yourself a pat on the back...Thank you......pick up your mat and walk......forgive"|The Colossians reading reminds us of true holiness: generosity, respect, reverence, truth, love. Make room for Jesus in our hearts, look for Jesus in others. We can be family together.en_US
