In this video from Life Teen, Joel Stepanek helps us understand the readings for the Feast of the Holy Family for Year A. What do we owe to each other as families?
In Sirach we hear practical wisdom on how families should live together. To honor means to will what is good for the other person. Families are not perfect. If we have difficult relationships, we can still honor our family members while recognizing that we have been hurt.
Marriage is an act of mutual submission. Once again, this doesn’t mean staying in a hurtful relationship. But a true marriage reflects the life of Christ. We offer ourselves to each other in service.
