God cares for each person individually and wants all people to be happy. But the road to happiness involves pain and suffering. God does not inflict pain, but rather helps people cope with it during life’s tragedies. The Holy Family relied on the God of love to weather many stormy moments. By exploring the broken aspects of Jesus’s family, today’s families can better appreciate God’s love for them and God’s desire to heal family wounds.
