O blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways!Responsorial Psalm for Feast of the Holy Family
O blessed are those who fear the Lord
and walk in his ways!
By the labour of your hands you shall eat.
You will be happy and prosper.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
in the heart of your house;
your children like shoots of the olive,
around your table.
Indeed thus shall be blessed
the man who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion
all the days of your life!
Everything comes together in good order – work and the fruit of work; mutuality and family; God and his people.
This does not just happen. But it does happen when we live as children of God, grateful and purposeful. Not without difficulty, but it does happen…
