Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary
First reading – 2 Samuel 7:4-5,12-14,16
St. Joseph gives us always a lot to meditate. St. Joseph accompanies in our way. St. Joseph strengthens us when we are in doubts. St. Joseph intercedes always for us to keep Jesus safe in us. “Your House and your sovereignty will always stand secure before me, and your throne be established for ever”. This is the promise given to the People of God through Prophet Nathan. The presence of God will be always there with us for ever. And God chose Joseph to be very important instrument in His Plan. Joseph fostered Jesus as a father. And St. Joseph continues his vocation in each one of us. God wants to establish His sovereignty in our hearts, and He wishes that our heart be His throne. In the life of Joseph, we can see how he welcomes the plan of God in his life changing his own plans to establish the sovereignty of God in his life. We can see how he embraces with courage the plan of God. Let’s reflect: Do we have the courage like St. Joseph to embrace the plan of God?
