The presider's homily was a letter he'd written to the parish (which I'd already read). It was a fine homily on the keeping of bits of Christmas around throughout the season, rather than dragging it all to the curb on the 26th, but that's not an issue for my household. So I was delighted to come home to find that my friend Fran was out of her comfort zone in writing a homily for the Feast Holy Family in Naked and You Clothed Me.
What kind of family are we being invited into by God? Would we flee the comforts of our usual orbits if God called us? You can hear/read the rest of what Fran had to say at There Will Be Bread, it's worth reading even when it's not the Feast of the Holy Family! Christ is all in all.
I will add that all the proceeds from the book of homilies that Fran (and I and twenty-four others) contributed to go to the poor. You can buy the book and it's companion for Cycle C at the publisher's web site.
