On the Virginal Marriage of St. Joseph and the Virgin Mary

"...the love that St. Joseph had for his wife, the Blessed Virgin.  The fact that it was a virginal marriage does not mean that it was a cold arrangement.  Passion is not necessary to love, nor are bodies.  The romance of Mary and Joseph drew its strength from their holiness, their relationship to Christ."
- Excerpt from Listen, Mother of God! Reflections on the Litany of Loreto by Msgr. Charles Dollen, OSV
