    Sa i n t J o s e ph Ca th o l i c Chu r ch 3

    Years ago, I asked our parish

    faith forma"on children to pray for

    children who were seeking to be

    adopted into a loving family. I re-

    ceived the first names and pictures

    of children in foster care in our area

    and gave each class a different

    child. In the month of stewardship

    of prayer that we were observing,

    they were to pray for these children

    each day of the month. It was a

    moving experience for the children

    and me. To even contemplate the

    reality of so many children in the

    world who had no place to truly call

    home made us emo"onal. A%er

    some "me had passed, I contacted

    the service that had supplied the

    names to me. About seventy per-

    cent had found permanent families!

    What a tremendous use of prayer!

    We have been given many wonder-

    ful things in this life, including the

    ability to pray. But there are more

    people who can pray than there are

    children who live in stable families.

    According to the Congressional Coa-

    li"on on Adop"on Ins"tute, nearly

    400,000 children in the US are living

    without permanent families. In

    2011, UNICEF stated that there

    were close to eighteen million or-

    phans who had lost both parents

    and were living in orphanages or on

    the street. I can only assume that

    with the events of the past few

    years, par"cularly in the Middle

    East, that staggering number has

    only increased. To think about it is

    truly devasta"ng.

    The Holy Family were refugees,

    having to flee their land to avoid

    persecu"on and death. But, thank-

    fully, they had each other. The Son

    of God already had to be born in a

    stable. Imagine what welcome this

    world would have had for the new-

    born King if not for his earthly par-


    Not all of us can adopt a child.

    But we can all use our gi% of prayer

    to pray for those who long for love.

    Everyone deserves love.

    To find out more about adop"on,

    contact your local Catholic Chari"es

    Happy Feast of the Holy Family!

    As we celebrate this feast it gives me cause to celebrate

    my own family and think about all the "mes weve cele-

    brated together. Like the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary

    and Joseph, weve had our trials but also our blessed

    "mes such as births, Bap"sms, First communions and

    weddings. But weve also shared "mes of sorrow such

    as deaths. Like many families weve had some who le% the Catholic

    Church for some other denomina"on. But we con"nue to love them. As

    you celebrate today, give praise to God for your family and con"nue to

    pray for each other.

    God Bless you.
