Day 27

Pillar of Families, Pray for Us


“Those who are devoted to prayer should, in a special manner, cherish devotion to St Joseph. I know not how anyone can ponder on the sufferings, trials and tribulations the Queen of Angels endured whilst caring for Jesus in his childhood, without at the same time thanking St Joseph for the services he rendered the Divine Child and his Blessed Mother.”

-St Teresa of Avila


Jesus, Mary and Joseph love families. Their three hearts are very concerned about what is happening to families today. Families are falling apart. Modern man has distanced himself from God and attempted to redefine what it means to be a family. As a result, divorce rates are at an all-time high; the majority of married couples use contraception; abortion is legal; and it is increasingly becoming a socially acceptable norm for children to be raised by two dads and/or two moms. This notion of a "modern family is a deception from the devil. The redefinition of marriage and the family causes the breakdown of society, culture, morals, and true family values.


God established the family to be a school of love, something beautiful, delightful, and life-giving, and the devil and his agents want to destroy it. How are we ever going to turn the situation around? The only way is to elevate the Holy Family as the model and blueprint of the family. When the Holy Family is celebrated in society, we will again know the sanctity of motherhood, the heroism of fatherhood, and the blessing of children.


Just as a pillar is a foundation for a building, for our home to stand on a firm foundation and be unshakable, our family needs St Joseph. He will teach us the importance of prayer, mutual respect, purity, honesty, forgiveness, love, and, most importantly, placing God above all things.

And from the person of St Joseph, men can learn what it means to be a husband and a father. And to realise that it is honourable for men to sacrifice themselves for others. For manhood and fatherhood are perfected through love, sacrifice and faithfulness to those entrusted to their care.


Prayer

O Head of the Holy Family and Glory of Domestic Life! We come to you for protection against the forces of evil which attack families by creating tensions and divisions, with grave consequences, particularly for children. The sanctity of family relations is being disrupted. Help us to overcome the lack of love, anger, and indifference which exists in our family relations with prayer, self-sacrifice and care. We thank Jesus that in imitating your virtues, God will abundantly bless our families. Amen.
