St. Joseph the Worker


The following is from today's Magnificat's Meditation of the Day:

"...What is crucially important here is the sanctification of daily life, a sanctification which each person must acquire according to his or her own state, and one which can be promoted according to a model accessible to all people: 'Saint Joseph is the model of those humble ones that Christianity raises up to great destinies; ...he is the proof that in order to be a good and genuine follower of Christ, there is no need of great things - it is enough to have the common, simple, and human virtues, but they need to be true and authentic." - Blessed John Paul II.

I always wish we knew more about St. Joseph. What a humble, obedient servant of God!
