Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are the Holy Family of Nazareth.
The Feast of the Holy Family is a liturgical celebration in the Catholic Chruch in honor of Jesus, his mother, and his foster father, Saint Joseph, as a family. The primary purpose of this feast is to present the Holy Family as a model for all Christian families.
The angel Gabriel said to Mary:
‘Peace be with you! God has blessed you and is pleased with you.’ ‘Don’t be afraid, God has been very kind to you. You will become pregnant by the Holy Spirit and give birth to a baby boy and you will call him Jesus. He will be God’s own Son and his kingdom will never end.’ Mary was very afraid but she trusted God. ‘Let it happen as God chooses.’ she replied to the angel. Gabriel also told Mary that her cousin, Elizabeth who everyone thought was too old to have children, would have a baby boy whom God had chosen to prepare the way for Jesus.
