The Holy Family consists of the infant Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and St. Joseph. This theme became popular in art from the 1490s. But the veneration of the “Holy Family” officially began in the 17th century with Saint Francois de Laval. He was the first bishop of New France, and he founded a fraternity. Take a look at our Holy Family sculpture. Jesus was playing on a chair with the cross, and Mary and Joseph were standing by Jesus’ side. It seems like a very nice family.
The Feast of the Holy Family is a liturgical celebration in Catholic churches, as well as in many Lutheran and Episcopal churches, to honor Jesus, his mother, and his adoptive father, St. Joseph, as a family. It has been observed since 1921 when it was inserted by Pope Benedict XV. The main purpose of this holiday is to show the holy family as an example of the Christian family and there are many churches dedicated to the holy family.
