Feast Day of St. Joseph, earthly Father of Jesus
Today let us reflect in silence on the person of St. Joseph, earthly Father of Jesus.
His life seems to have been one of quiet reflection for we do not know of any words he spoke. The birth and childhood of Jesus give us no direct knowledge of St. Joseph’s words. We know God chose him to fulfill the role of Earthly Father for Jesus. And we know he was a good provider for both Jesus and Mary. In quiet contemplation, let us ponder the qualities that made him holy.
St. Joseph, pray for us and for our families.
