Lenten Reflection Day 31: Matthew 1:20


Listen to the audio version here: https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/Lenten-Reflection-Day-31-Matthew-120-et07an

“Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.” (Matthew 1:20)

Reflection

We know little about St. Joseph, the husband of Mary. What we do know, however, is a blessing.

The descendent of a human king obediently humbled himself for the glory of the divine King. He fasted from fear to serve his family courageously. He was a righteous man, a man of prayer. When it meant the most, he trusted in his faith to protect his family from peril and, indirectly, us from the sting of death.

Today’s Intention

Lord, you give us St. Joseph as an example of righteousness, obedience, and courage. May we, who are responsible for others’ care, enjoy the same graces of humility, fortitude, and charity from the Holy Spirit as we near the end of the Lenten season and beyond.

St. Joseph, pray for us.

Peace and Goodness
