REFLECTION

Where is the Holy Family Today?

Caritas Internationalis | TIME: 2:01

Cardinal Luis Tagle, shares an Advent reflection on Jesus as a migrant and a refugee. “The bells ring during Advent not just in celebration, but also to wake us up from our slumber. As we await the birth of Jesus, we are called to open our eyes and hearts to the possibility of hope. We are reminded that God is with us on our life’s journey and that we too are called to accompany others on theirs.”

"Where is the Holy Family today?" - Caritas Advent Appeal 2017
