TENDERNESS AND COURAGE, FAITH AND CREATIVITY: SAINT JOSEPH

See the tenderness of God that makes us “accept our weakness”. Because it is through it that most of the divine plans are carried out. In Saint Joseph “Jesus saw the tenderness of God”.

Through him, it is as if God were repeating to us: “Don’t be afraid!” Because “faith gives meaning to each event.” Furthermore, “José faced ‘with his eyes open ’what was happening to him.”

Courage and creativity arise in difficulties. And they lead to people making unexpected resources emerge from us.

Saint Joseph also teaches us “the value, dignity and joy” of “eating the bread that is the fruit of one’s own work”. Effort, perseverance and dedication as the root of work.

Joseph’s fatherhood is like “the shadow of the heavenly Father on earth.” Because he “takes care of him”, taking responsibility for his life. In the midst of COVID, let us consider those who exercise patience and instill hope every day, those of the discreet and hidden presence. A father in tenderness, in welcome. A father of creative courage, a worker. With these words, Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph in the Apostolic Letter Patris corde, a letter published last December 8 on the 150th anniversary of his declaration as Patron of the Catholic Church.
