The Holy Family?

I have a question (anti-catholic anon be nice if you come here).

Okay I saw someone in another question say they have a picture of the holy family. Who is in that family? Is it the Trinity? Or is it God the Father and all of us His children? Or is it Joseph, Mary, and Jesus? I am assuming it is Joseph, Mary, and Jesus, but that is just me. I have never heard anyone talk about a holy family.

Thanks : )

  • Random story - it was pondering a painting of the holy family at a nun-training retreat that convinced my mom that she needed to be a mom instead of a nun.

    I guess I wouldn't have been born if it wasn't for that...so thanks to them and that artist.

  • That's what I think of when I hear somebody say "Holy Family" - Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
