(St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Joseph her (Blessed Virgin Mary) husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Mt_1:16,18-21,24a
A man of righteousness. A man of listening. A man of obedience. A working man. A loving man. A man of patience. A man of faith. The very best of husbands and fathers. A guide, a mentor, a teacher, a leader. Joseph, a man of virtue. Joseph, a man chosen by God for a very special role in the life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you God for choosing Joseph. Thank you Joseph for saying YES!
