Prayer (January 21)

Blessed is the family whose God is the Lord, and that walks in His Presence. 

Blessed is the family founded on love and whose attitudes, words, gestures, and decisions spring forth from love. 

Blessed is the family open to life, welcoming children as a gift, valuing the presence of the elderly, and sensitive to the poor and suffering.

Blessed is the family that prays together to praise the Lord, entrusting to Him its concerns and hopes. 

Blessed is the family that lives what ties it together with freedom, allowing everyone the autonomy to grow as a unique individual. 

Blessed is the family that finds time for dialogue, to relax and have fun and to celebrate together. 

Blessed is the family that is not a slave to the television and that chooses programs of value and meaning. 

Blessed is the family in which differences do not create “drama”  but which provide the setting where each one can grow in respect, goodness, and mutual forgiveness.  

Blessed is the family where peace reigns within and among all: therein are found the roots that will nourish world peace. 

Blessed is the family that lives in harmony with the universe, and that commits itself to construct a world that is ever more human. 

Blessed is the family that decides that it is possible to live some of these beatitudes even if it does not recognize itself in all of them. 

Blessed is the family in which life is a joy, being apart brings homesickness, and returning there is a cause for celebration.

    one comment to the official 2017 Strenna poster for reflection:

    I would like to draw your attention to the graphic which accompanies this year’s strenna.
    It is an inclusive line-drawing which depicts young and old, healthy and disabled and the blessedness of family life.

    The two figures on the left however, show a teenage boy and a teenage pregnant girl. The girl looks to be 15 or 16 and the boy (with a sheepish grin on his face) not much older.

    I don’t think we Salesians should be giving such an ambiguous message to youth in our clubs, schools and parishes and to the Muslim world!

    With every best wish for 2017.
