Commentary on the Gospel of
Joseph had to make a great act of faith when he discovered Mary was pregnant with Jesus and also when told to go into exile. He listened to and obeyed God. We know very little about Joseph as he stayed in the background. He educated Jesus as a child and played his part in preparing him, with Mary, for his future ministry. We are often asked by God to “step out into the deep” and take risks for the Gospel. Are we prepared to do ot, following the example of St Joseph.
