Men imagine so many things about God… wrong ideas about a God who watches, evaluates, tests. Therefore the poor creature thinks it is essential for her to please in order to survive to such a test. Thus Abraham imagined that sacrificing his son, his only son, his sweetheart, would please God. But God ates death sentences, He who created the human beings. Eventually, Abraham, as everybody else, finds out through his son the first of the divine visitations. And Joseph did more than anybody else.
Saint Joseph, take us in your sweet house of Nazareth, may we change through your example from idolatry to real adoration.
