The Familial Mysteries (of a Layman)ok'd by Father Flynn, these are my own idea because I found in the life of St Joseph, invariants of the confusion of family life in general. He sets an example for the heads of households. The recent history of the Church called for contributions from the laity, and this is mine. it is not officially approved by the Catholic Church however.

  1. St.Joseph accepts Mary as his wife.
  2. The Holy Family set out to Jerusalem
  3. St. Joseph takes the family to Egypt to escape Herod
  4. St. Joseph is directed by an angel to return to Galilee where Jesus is raised
  5. The Holy Family set out for a family gathering and Jesus sets off on His own
