Homily: The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph 

As Christians, we have been grafted onto the family of Jesus. We are his brothers and sisters, his relatives – if not by blood, then by adoption into the family of God. Therefore, we too, have been invited to be sharers in the stories, characteristics, outlooks and ways of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We share the family resemblance.

Following his death, the College of Cardinals elected Archbishop Giacomo Paolo Giovanni Battista della Chiesa, who was only 59 to the Papacy. The new pope—who had only been a cardinal for a few months—took the name Benedict XV and faced a world at war on such a scale it was deemed ‘The War to End All Wars’.
