The Holy Family

Saint Gabriel the Archangel Roman Catholic Church, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - nativity scene

At Saint Gabriel the Archangel Church, in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Today is the Feast of the Holy Family according to the Mass of Pope Paul VI. From the first reading:
Children, pay heed to a father's right; do so that you may live.
For the LORD sets a father in honor over his children; a mother's authority he confirms over her sons.
He who honors his father atones for sins;
he stores up riches who reveres his mother.
He who honors his father is gladdened by children, and when he prays he is heard…
— Sirach 3:1-5 (New American Bible)
