Feast of the Holy Family Sometimes it seems odd to listen to politicians talk about family values as though no one has ever heard of them. People live family values every day, often heroically, helping one another achieve greatness and success. The family value is love. It carries us through, and helps bring us together as one. It supports and affirms, it heals and nourishes, and it forgives and accepts. With the focus on Jesus, the role of the Holy Family can sometimes be forgotten. Joseph, as husband and father, protects and guides. Mary, as wife and mother, nourishes and supports. Jesus, as a son, obeys and grows in holiness and wisdom. Despite their unique roles in salvation history, the members of this family are pretty much like the rest of us: living together in faith, hope and love. The Christmas Season gives us many opportunities to express our love and appreciation for our family. Time spent together is so precious and we should try to include everyone, even those who over time and events have grown a bit distant. Pray for the grace of the Holy Family and let others know how much they are loved. ~James Gaffney, St. George Publishing [email protected]

Reading Has Welcomed a Refugee Family

Parish Staff

Members of Reading POWR (People Organized to Welcome Refugees), a program of Catholic Charities of Boston, greeted a family of three adult refugees from Ethiopia at Logan Airport on Wednesday, December 20. Volunteers brought a “Welcome” banner and an array of warm clothes for people who had never experienced snow or cold weather. Reading POWR located an affordable apartment for them in Reading and will turn now to helping them to improve their English and adjust to life in a new country. Their arrival in Reading just before Christmas was a poignant one: we hope to be able to assure them that there is, indeed, “room for them at the Inn” after their years of privation and turmoil. The family includes a respected tribal elder, his young adult son, and a nephew. All have spent the last twelve years in a refugee camp in Kenya, hoping for a permanent home where they could live in peace and safety. They have passed multiple background checks, and are able to work and pursue U.S. citizenship. Financial donations are still most welcome to help with their expenses until they are self-supporting: visit the Reading POWR website at https:// or go to .
