December 31, 2017 - American Individualism and the Holy Family

December 31, 2017

There is, of course, some truth to the idea that we need to make our own way, make our lives our own. But the idea that our family is not a crucial part of that process, this lone ranger mentality we have in America, is foreign to the whole history of humanity! When Jesus came as a man, he chose to live his first thirty years as a part of a family, so he knows the struggles we face there. Mundane family life has been divinized, it is worth the fight!
