Geeky Catholic Sunday: Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph 2018

Gospel Reading: Luke 2:41-52

Highlight: "His mother kept all these things in her heart."

Reflection: A lot of things that happened in Mary's life probably didn't make sense in the moment. But she kept them in her heart. None of us is raising the Messiah, but I'm willing to bet that we don't fully understand the full significance of most events in our lives. We should imitate Mary, and hold these things in our hearts. Not to stress about them, or ruminate, but rather to offer them up in prayer. Later, if we're fortunate, we'll be able to look back at those moments and get a glimpse of God's plan, and the part we played in it.

Prayer: God, help me to be a willing participant in your providence. Amen.
