Feastday: October 12
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
As the Son of God was growing up, God the Father could have had Him go to the best schools in the world. He could've gone to the most prestigious university in Greece, the great libraries of Rome or the best school in Jerusalem. Instead, God wanted His Son to stay home with His Mother and His Father. "And the Child grew, and waxed strong, full of wisdom; and the grace of God was in Him." (Luke 2:52)
