The Feast of the Holy Family
is today.

"When, for our sakes, the Son came on earth and took our flesh, yet He would not live without the sympathy of others. For thirty years He lived with Mary and Joseph and thus formed a shadow of the Heavenly Trinity on earth. O the perfection of that sympathy which existed between the three! Not a look of one, but the other two understood, as expressed, better than if expressed in a thousand words—nay more than understood, accepted, echoed, corroborated. It was like three instruments absolutely in tune which all vibrate when one vibrates, and vibrate either one and the same note, or in perfect harmony. " -Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O.

Also, on this date last year I attended the ordination of Fr. Michael Darcy of the Pittsburgh Oratory to the priesthood. Ad multos annos, Fr. Michael !
