St. Joseph was the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the foster-father of Jesus. When an angel told him that the child in Mary’s womb was the Son of God, he listened to the angel and took Mary as his wife. He also saved the life of the Infant Jesus by obeying God’s message to take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt.
As a carpenter, Joseph worked hard to support his family. His selfless devotion to Mary and Jesus makes him a model for all. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. Joseph, who listened to the word of God, devoted himself to Mary and Jesus, and humbly worked to build up God’s kingdom.
