MARY 'S FAMILY: THE TRINITY ON EARTH "It is only natural that the Church rejoice as one contemplates the modest home of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. We read in the hymn from Matins on the feast of the Holy Family: ‘It is pleasing to recall the humble house of Nazareth and its slender resources. It is pleas­ing to tell again in song Jesus' hidden life. Jesus grows up in hid­den seclusion, to be trained in Joseph's unpretentious trade. The loving mother sits beside her dear Son, the good wife by her husband, content if her loving attention can ease and comfort them in their weariness.' " Let us offer to our Mother today: A loving review of her life with Jesus, as we recite the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.
