St Joseph


Today we celebrate the solemnity of St Joesph, husband of the blessed virgin Mary.

St Joseph is one of the saints most catholics know quite well, so I won’t give a schpeel about his life but rather a few wee thoughts instead.

The one thing that keeps coming back to me about St Joesph is: How good a man must St Jospeh have been for our God to choose him to be his father, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ? What an amazing gift from God.

The other thing on mind is that poor St Joseph was thrown in at the deep end by God and yet he continued to love, care for and protect Jesus and Mary. At this uncertain time, St Jospeh is a wonderful example of how we can trust in the Lord and listen to his voice, even when it seems crazy. We can turn to him at this time, we can ask for his prayers and we can love and care for our families and neighbours as he did so well for his.

St Jospeh, pray for us.
