Nazareth a model for mutual love

LSM 1985 face

‘We always say that Nazareth is the model for a life that is poor, a life of manual work. We almost never say that Nazareth is a model for mutual love. If God allowed Jesus and Mary and Joseph to live together for such a long time it must have been to give an example of mutual love in all its forms.’
