HOLY, HAPPY, HEALING FAMILIES

 
"Raphael said to Tobiah before he reached his father: 'I am certain that his eyes will be opened. Smear the fish gall on them.' " —Tobit 11:7-8
 

The Lord healed Tobit of blindness through:

  • the archangel Raphael,
  • the medicine of fish gall,
  • his son, Tobiah, and
  • his son's homecoming.

Family members and the home are often the main people and places the Lord chooses to heal.

We use the expression: "When you get home from the hospital, you'll feel better." Thus, we intimate that the Lord heals through the family and the home. So let us accept God's grace to make our families holy. This will make our homes happy and healing "domestic churches" (see Catechism, 1655ff), dwelling places for God.

Many homes are hurtful. They make people sick. But homes with holy families heal people. Let the Lord make you and your home holy, happy, and healing.

 
Prayer: Father, I repent of sin, bitterness, and unforgiveness in my family.
Promise: "The crowd heard this with delight." —Mk 12:37
Praise: Peter and Mary renewed their marriage vows at church just two days after Peter's brain surgery.
