Holiest of Families

The day after Christmas is always the feast of the Synaxis (meaning “Gathering”, referring to the congregation gathering again the day after a major feast) of the Theotokos.  The Sunday after Christmas is always the feast of the three relatives of Jesus- Joseph, David and James.  So rarely do we have the merging of these two feasts like we do this year, since Christmas is on a Saturday.  Rarely do we get to celebrate both Mary and Joseph together on the same day.  We also commemorate the flight into Egypt on December 26th, so we will be commemorating this holiest of families, together, and remembering that oftentimes families carry crosses not only individually, but together.  May we always have families, biological, chosen, and parish, with which to share our crosses, and the eventual resurrection!

“Out of Egypt I have called my son.” The righteous Joseph the betrothed was faithful to his calling, protecting Jesus and the Theotokos by journeying to Egypt and returning to Nazareth. Our Lord calls each one of us out of the spiritual Egypt of our lives so that we may live in the promised land meant for our lives. Is he calling you to a life of holy orders or monasticism?  Contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
