The sufferings of the Passion didn’t start in Gethsémani, Joseph did witnessed it. He remembered Abraham’s inner heartbreak, he remembered his hope: “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” (Gn 22,8).

God would obviously interfere, God wouldn’t take Isaac, his son, his only one, his cherished one away: he wanted to believe it.

Saint Joseph would remain in Hope as well. A deep hope for his people, and for the human family who would see through Jesus the Lamb of God. A silent hope who got him to never be away from his son. Thus he decided to follow him on the path of the Passion, he even had chosen to come before him. It is through the sufferings of his very pure heart that Joseph resembled the most his son.
