The Holy Family

Pious tradition suggests that the church of Saint Joseph in Nazareth was built over the workshop of Joseph. Although the mosaic commemorates the workshop, the place was a major water source so I imagined Jesus accompanying our Lady there.

And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man. ~Luke 2:51-52

When a profound silence covered all things
and night was in the middle of its course,
your all-powerful Word, O Lord,
bounded from heaven’s royal throne. ~Wis 18: 14-15
