Ninth day of the Novena Prayer to the Holy Family of Nazareth

Ninth Day

The Holy Family teaches us Interior Peace

Jesus said in Matthew 11:30, "for my Yoke is easy, and my burden light." This may be contrary to what we experience in our days as the burden we bear always looks like it is weighing us down.

The coming of the Holy Family into the world was the beginning of true and spiritual peace for our hearts. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph teach us how we can attain peace, by imitating their lives. Does living a holy life seem “easy” or more like a “struggle?” Our daily struggle should be with our attachment to sin or our desire for material things of this world, not with living as Jesus lived. The more we separate ourselves from sin and material desires and live the virtuous lives of the Holy Family, the more the burden is lifted and the more peaceful our lives become.

As we journey with the Holy Family and change our lives to be more like theirs, notice those moments of peace and joy. Know that these moments are times of grace from God that encourage us to keep moving in the same direction on our journey.

Let us pray ...
