Filipinos have traditionally recognized children as a gift from God. They experience the birth of a baby into the world as a special moment when God's creative power is so intimately united with their own human parental procreative powers.
Today, we celebrate the feast of the Holy Family. The holy family was displayed every virtue which must be found in every home life, with its mutual services of charity, its holy communication, and its practices of godly piety. This is what makes a family holy.
The Holy Family challenges is to live simply in times of prosperity and retain our dignity in times of hardships and distress. Those who have more in life may learn that moral worth is to be more highly esteemed than wealth. The Holy Family inspires us to work and to provide for the daily wants of life.
