Feast of the Holy Family
Saint Josemaría insists that marriage is a Christian vocation meant for many men and women, as shown in a the video “Take a chance on happiness.” The homily "Marriage, a Christian Vocation," given by Saint Josemaria on the feast of the Holy Family in 1970 helps us celebrate this Feast.
Holidays, family culture and prudent use of internet
November and December are the holiday months for many primary and secondary students in Kenya. Keeping the young ones constructively occupied in this long break is a challenge to many a parent. Strathmore School compiled and distributed among its parents some pointers on how to make prudent and profitable use of the holidays and of the internet.
Family Traditions: The Annual "Crespillos"
Knowing how to be creative with what one has at home: perhaps this example could serve as inspiration. Every year on the "Friday of Sorrows" (the Friday before Palm Sunday), the mother of Saint Josemaría, Dolores Escrivá, used to prepare a special dessert called "crespillos". It was a simple dessert that she would only make on that day, and thus the family would look forward to it. The recipe is easy to follow and inexpensive, and makes for a tasty and original dessert for your family.
