“When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him
and took his wife into his home.” (MT 1: 24)
St. Joseph was not a man of many words; actually we have no evidence of any of his words kept in the Bible. For sure he was obliged to name his Son during the presentation of the newborn son in the Temple, so—for sure—he said a minimum one word: Jesus. He wasn’t a man of many words, but he was a man of many amazing actions: as a husband, as a father, as guardian and protector. Today we are admiring his secret service and outstanding love for Our Lord and Our Lady, learning from him how to serve and how to love.
“Blessed are those who dwell in your house, O Lord; they never cease to praise you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
