‘Her husband Joseph being a righteous man was unwilling to expose her to disgrace’ – Matthew 1:19
We talk so much about Jesus and Mary and very often completely forget about Joseph. I thought, I would share a few thoughts today.
- He is the Patron Saint of Workers
Often we struggle to work in a way that honors God. St. Joseph can teach us how to work well, if we ask him.
- His Intercession is Powerful
“Since he was the father of Jesus he could command Jesus on earth, so also in Heaven Jesus still does all that St. Joseph asks” – St. Theresa
- He is a father figure
For all the boys, he is the ideal role model while the girls who have lost their father can seek love and comfort from him.
- He was obedient
In an age, where we want to do things our own way, Joseph is a great reminder that true greatness is found in following God’s will, not our own.
- He was a man of silence
In an age of noise and many words, St. Joseph reminds us that if we wish to hear God’s voice, we must quieten our hearts and enter into silence.
Let us intercede to Saint Joseph today and always
Let us pray this prayer for whatever difficult situation we are going through today
