The Holy Family consists of the Child Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and Saint Joseph. Sundays, the Feast of the Holy Family is celebrated on December 30th. The Gospels speak little of the life of the Holy Family in the years before Jesus’ public ministry. The Feast of the Holy Family is a liturgical celebration in the Catholic Church, as well as in many Lutheran and Anglican churches, in honour of Jesus of Nazareth, his mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his foster father, Saint Joseph, as a family.
From the 17th century, the feast has been celebrated at a local and regional level and at that level was promoted by Pope Leo XIII. The Holy Family became a subject popular in art in the early 16th century, in both Italian Renaissance painting and Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting. The popularity of the subject was associated with an increased interest in, and devotion to, Saint Joseph. Many early Holy Family compositions are either Nativity scenes or the Rest on the Flight into Egypt with the removal of other event-specific elements, such as the ox and ass of the Nativity, to concentrate on the three main figures for devotional images, mostly intended for wealthy homes. Joseph is often absent in these, removing them from the usual definition of a Holy Family. The Parte Guelfa Holy Family by Luca Signorelli dates from about 1490.

The Nymphs in twilight shade of tangled thickets mourn. While each peculiar power forgoes his wonted seat. In vain the Tyrian maids their wounded Thammuz mourn.
