Title : 3/19
passage : Matthew 1: 16, 18-21, 24a.
passagePhrase : “...the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.’ When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.”

I’m always inspired by the beautiful mural in our own St. Joseph Chapel, created by Teresita Kelly, O.P., a faculty member in the Art Department for nearly 30 years. My take on it is that it depicts Joseph as protector of a young Jesus, and as a partner for Mary. When Joseph does as the angel commands, he places his own perceived need behind the needs of his soon-to-be family. His is a tangible act of faith that exemplifies true partnership – a deeper investment in the needs of his partner than of his own needs. It’s a hard act to follow, but we would do well to try.
