Home is a Holy Place is about recognising and responding to God's presence at home with our families, in the ordinary events of our daily lives, in the deep joys and sorrows we experience together and in our relationships with one another, whether we are children, siblings, parents, spouses, friends or neighbours.
Home is a Holy Place aims to raise greater awareness of God's presence at home not just among families but among all those who serve them in any way within our Catholic community.
does Joseph respond to his calling to be the protector of Mary, Jesus and
the Church? By being constantly attentive to God, open to the signs of
Godís presence and receptive to Godís plans and not simply to his own...
does not want a house built by humans, but faithfulness to his word, to
his plan. It is God himself who builds the house, but from living stones
sealed by his Spirit. Joseph is a ďprotectorĒ because he is able to
hear Godís voice and be guided by his will; and for this reason he is
all the more sensitive to the persons entrusted to his safekeeping. He can
look at things realistically, he is in touch with his surroundings, he can
make truly wise decisions."
