Let Us Pray
Dear Jesus, Saint Joseph is such a wonderful model of virtue for me to imitate. I can imagine how inadequate he must have felt to have you and your holy Mother entrusted to his care. May I have the faith, like Saint Joseph, to fulfill my responsibilities with magnanimity.
Scripture for Reflection
"Behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, 'Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit; she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins'" (Matthew 1:20–21).
