On the occasion of the Solemnity of St. Joseph, we interrupt for today the series of meditations on the “Message of the Father”, to reflect a little on the one whom God chose to be the nourishing father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. On this occasion I take the meditation of the previous year.
Jacob fathered Joseph the husband of Mary; of her was born Jesus who is called Christ. This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.
