The Holy Family - "What About You"

Holy Family '15




Just this past September, Pope Francis came to the United States to share his wisdom with the world. He said in advance of the trip that his main goal of the visit was to come for the World Meeting of Families in Philidelphia. At Mass with a number Bishops, Clergy, and Religious he told a story about St. Katharine Drexel – an American Saint. She went to Pope Leo XIII and wanted to speak about the needs of the missions. America, after all, was still a missionary nation.

Being a wise Pope, Leo XIII turned her question back on her –
“What about you?”
“What are you going to do?”
These words changed the life of St. Katharine
The Pope then turned the question on everyone in the congregation
“What about you?”

This is precisely the question we’re called to meditate upon this weekend. The beauty of the Christmas Story is that it doesn’t end at the Nativity
