Imagine for a moment what it would be like for a woman of Mary’s purity to invite you into her heart, only to expect that same depths of purity from you in return.
Joseph would’ve needed heroic courage to stay committed to virtue to love Mary on her terms.
Imagine for a moment what it would be like to protect Jesus as a child.
Imagine for a moment what it would be like to kneel at the bedside of a six-year old Jesus, knowing God chose you to teach Jesus how to pray.
“Joseph, son of DAVID, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife.” Matthew 1:20-21
💛❤️💙 Saint Joseph was a man of great loyalty to God. A very Holy man. A devout Orthodox Jewish man. He came from a small town and kept a humble heart. This week, you’re invited to join us as we reflect on what it was like to prepare the heart of the foster father of Jesus to care for the Christ born of flesh. We too must prepare our hearts to receive Him.
👉🏼JOIN ME each day as we journey into the heart of a true saint. We’ll be reflecting on the Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Joseph and you’re invited to share your journal thoughts with us on Instagram and Facebook.
🎧 LISTEN to this week’s meditation:
🙏🏼 PRAY/REFLECT: “Father, I ask you to make this Advent my best ever. Help me to slow down, embrace the quiet, and to find you with me, no matter where I am.”
What is it that you would like God to give you this Christmas?
