Today’s Passage: Matthew 2:13-23
Message [used with permission from A Sermon for Every Sunday]: In Search of a Happy Ending – First Sunday After Christmas by Father Michael Renninger, pastor of St. Mary Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia.
“If the perfect Son of God were born into a perfect family, in a perfect way, in a perfect town, at a perfect time, then his message would probably only apply to perfect people,” says Father Michael Renninger. In today’s passage, Matthew 2:13-23, we learn that Jesus’ birth was not a perfect situation for Joseph, Mary, or Jesus. Listen as Renninger explains how the Holy Family’s imperfect situation brings hope for imperfect people today.
