Feast of the Holy Family

On the way to Mass this morning, I began to pray morning prayer in the liturgy of the hours and the hymn that was chosen just lifted my heart with great joy. I pray it touches your heart in the same way.

Ant. Come let us worship Christ, the Son of God, who was obedient to Joseph and Mary.


Joseph of Nazareth, you are the man
Last in the line that rose from David King
Down through the royal generations ran
And ends with Jesus Christ.

Gabriel from heaven came to Mary’s aide
Came with the joyful promise of a King
Came to you also, Joseph to confide
That God conceived this Child.

Guardian and foster-father of the Christ,
Honor to you, so chosen by our God!
Husband of Virgin Mary, you are first
To show us Christian love.
