My Reflections for June 16 Saturday Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary Luke 2:41-51


My Reflections:
Mario was a good son and the sole provider to his siblings and parents. One day he said to his parents that he will now get married, both parents were speechless and in shock. Being both retired they were full of trepidation they were silently asking themselves: Who will provide for us now?      

Just like in that short story, sometimes we make arbitrary actions that hurt and give apprehension to our relatives especially to our siblings, children and parents. They may not directly say their apprehensions because they deeply respect our independence but deep in their hearts they are anxious.  

This must be the feeling of both Joseph and Mary when Jesus purposely remained behind in Jerusalem. So they went back to Jerusalem full of anxiety and many thoughts were already running in their minds. After three days they found Jesus safe and sound in the temple intently listening to the lectures and asking questions.

We will not lose anything if we will first consult or inform our loved ones before making any kind of important decisions in our life.
