Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. Christopher Newman, cmf

19th March St. Joseph

Joseph was a man who wanted to do the right thing. In the confusion of discovering his betrothed to be pregnant his concern was for Mary. But he was also a man of faith. With the situation explained by the angel, he was man enough to do what was asked of him by God. Joseph, along with Mary, provided Jesus with a secure and loving environment in which to grow and mature. As we continue through Lent let us pray that we will also be people of faith who always chose to do the right thing
