In our times, could there be any more important feast within the Octave of Christmas than the feast of The Holy Family?
Heaven proclaims that children need a dad and a mom. Children desperately need a stable family - moms and dads who are married and stay married to one another. Fathers are critical to the family and the proper upbringing of children - if it were not so, the Father would not have given St. Joseph to Our Lady and Jesus.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, defend and protect the family.
