"But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”"
St. Joseph, A Saint, Worker, and Man
St. Joseph is a scarcely looked at figure in the Gospel. We know that he is a Saint, sure. He also knows that he works a particular job, he’s a carpenter. And as well he is a man, a human. Like you and I. But what is it that makes him a little bit more outstanding? Surely if he was so important, the Gospels may have mentioned him more than a mere two-to-three times. It may be the case that we know enough about St. Joseph, his role as a family man, and his role in the plan of salvation. He may be hidden in the background that is the Bible, we don’t even know exactly when he passed, actually. But we do know a whole heck of a lot more than we might assume, or even thought of previously. Through his work, his life, and his acceptance of God’s plan, we see that St. Joseph is perfect in the way that he is portrayed and how we know him as it is currently.
