Dec 10 – Homily – Fr Louis Maximilian: The Holy House of Loreto and the Intimacy We All Are Looking For
Homily #131210n ( 15min) Play - Today we celebrate the Holy House of Loreto, the house in which the Annunciation took place and the Holy Family later lived, and Fr. Louis points out that the small size of the building shows the intimacy and union the Holy Family lived in and, in particular, between Mary and Jesus. However, this intimacy is not one exclusive to them, but one which we all need to enter into. Do we hold God at arm's length? Do we seek intimacy in created things but never seem to be able to fill a void in our hearts? These are questions we all need to ask ourselves, and especially those of us called to consecrated life. Let us come with confidence to the Blessed Virgin and let Her mold our hearts and fill them with God.
