The Holy Family Christmas Specials

The Holy Family Christmas Specials from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.

The subject became popular in art from the 1490s on, but veneration of the Holy Family was formally begun in the 17th century by Saint François de Laval, the first bishop of New France, who founded a confraternity.

The Feast of the Holy Family is a liturgical celebration in the Catholic Church, as well as in many Lutheran and Anglican churches, in honour of Jesus, His mother, and His foster father, Saint Joseph, as a family; it has observed since 1921 when it inserted by Pope Benedict XV. The primary purpose of this feast is to present the Holy Family as a model for Christian families. There many churches dedicated to the Holy Family.

The Gospels speak little of the life of the Holy Family in the years before Jesus’ public ministry. Matthew and Luke narrate the episodes from this period of Christ’s life, namely his circumcision and later Presentation. The flight to Egypt, the return to Nazareth, and the Finding in the Temple. Joseph and Mary were apparently observant Jews, as Luke narrates that they brought Jesus with them on the annual pilgrimage to Jerusalem with other Jewish families.
