Mother Theresa on Home and Family

" In Jesus, Mary and Joseph - the Holy Family of Nazareth-we have beautiful example for us to imitate. What did they do?

Joseph was a humble carpenter in order to support Jesus and Mary, providing their food and clothes-whatever they needed.

Mary, the mother, also had a humble task-that of a housewife with a son and a husband to take care of.

As the son was growing up, Mary would worry that he would have a normal life, that he would "feel at home" in the house with her and Joseph.

It was a home where tenderness, understanding and mutual respect abounded. 

A wonderful example for us to imitate"
