They are God’s gift to you.” Desmond Tutu.
Help me to follow the example of the Holy Family,
and to remember that all families are holy – and human.
Help me to stop trying to be perfect,
and to accept my inadequacies,
so that I can create a peaceful and happy home.
"When I was visiting London for the day and had a bit of extra time to kill I would drop by the National Gallery to see this picture. It's very large and this little reproduction doesn't do it justice. I love the way the composition shows how the Holy Family reflects the Holiest Family of the Holy Trinity. Then how St Joseph gazes at us to challenge us fathers to reproduce the Holy Family and therefore the life of the Trinity within our own homes." Fr Dwight Longenecker

The prayer and reflection (in blue) was given to me by my lovely friend Maureen, and it was too good not to share. I hope she forgives me for the little animation I added at the top!
