Feast of the Holy Family


Today, as we celebrate the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I wanted to point you to a wonderful reflection written by one of my favorite authors, Mike Hayes, the author of Googling God: The Religious Landscape of People in Their 20s and 30s.  Mike honestly shares about the struggle to become a parent and how it relates to today’s feast.

These questions of Mike’s are still resonating in my head:

Do we have faith strong enough to let go and trust that God really knows what he’s doing? Do we have enough faith to allow God to use us without really knowing how it will all end?
