Feast of the Holy Family

I hope you had a blessed feast day. Good advice on how to imitate the Holy Family, from today's Epistle:

Colossians 3:12-17

Put ye on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, the bowels of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, patience: Bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if any have a complaint against another. Even as the Lord hath forgiven you, so do you also. But above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly: in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Through the Gate O'Morn
He came
In a stable born

Where St. Joseph
Held her hand
Both so tired and worn.

Patient donkey
Just outside
Munching on some corn

Saw the love
St. Joseph had
To Mary he was sworn.

Saw St. Joseph's
Furrowed brow
Knowing future scorn

Saw St. Joseph
In the now
Fighting 'gainst forlorn.

Then the donkey
Heard with joy
The herald of a horn

Angel Gabriel
Announcing wide
History's curtain torn!

Then St. Joseph
Walking by
Some fleecy, sheep some shorn

Behind this wife,
He'd reach new life
Through Mary of the Morn.
