Thought of the Day March 20, 2017

Today, we celebrate the feast of St. Joseph. What do we learn from him? He is a man of silence, who hears the plan of God for him and acts on them in obedience. He was willing to forgo his desires and plans to embrace the desires and plans of God, no matter the cost to himself. In faith and in dependence upon God he lived as the husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus, protecting and providing for them, always in the shadows, never in the limelight. An unknown person in his own right becomes by God's design a person renowned throughout the ages for his fidelity to God. St. Joseph, pray for us to follow the plans of God in our own lives in silence and obedience, in faith and trust.
