The Feast of the Holy Family

Here's a nice prayer, on the occasion of the Feast of the Holy Family.  Today's Feast also seems an occasion for reflecting on the centrality of the family -- "the first and vital cell of society" -- to the Church's Social Teaching (and, in particular, to the structure and content of the Compendium). 

In case you haven't looked at it recently, here's Familiaris consortio.  And, here's an address that Pope Benedict XVI delivered on the Feast, two years ago.
