St John Paul II wrote that “The history of mankind, the history of salvation, passes by way of the family.” In this meditation we reflect on the importance of the family in God’s plan and on how we can improve our family life so that we grow in holiness through it and help our children to do the same. We will consider:
Why family life is so important
How we can celebrate significant occasions together
How we can find God in the ordinary duties of family life
How husband and wife can grow in their relationship
How we can form our children humanly and spiritually
St Joseph, husband of Mary and guardian of the Holy Family is a man of many virtues. In this meditation we consider some of them with the aim of striving to imitate St Joseph and to grow in devotion to him.
