Every week Luis (Chito) Cardinal Tagle, the Archbishop of Manila, records reflections about the Sunday Gospel. For this feast of the Holy Family he spoke about growth in holiness in the context of family life. Integral to this is children honoring their parents and parents caring for their children motivated by love. In particular, both parents and children show honor by seeking the Will of God and acting on the Will of God. You might enjoy listening to Cardinal Tagle’s reflection.
