The Holy Family of Nazareth Holy Family of Nazareth - Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Holy Family of Nazareth - Jesus, Mary and JosephThe Incarnation of the Word of God, the Messiah, had to take place as prophesied.
God in His Wisdom  decided to have the purest of creatures, the Blessed Virgin Mary as the mother of His only begotten Son. He chose Joseph a chaste and just man to spouse Mary in a special relationship of chastity, where He would care for Mary and the holy infant Jesus.

Mary cared for Jesus, as the most special of mothers, Joseph worked as a carpenter. He provided for Jesus and Mary and protected them.

Devotion to the Holy Family has brought many blessings to families throughout the centuries.

Let us ask the Holy Family to bless our families.
