Homily from the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph

Jesus entered into this broken world by entering into the reality that all of us have experienced: family life. He did not insulate Himself from the harsh realities of life by embracing a life of wealth. Rather, all He had was borrowed.
