Thought 118

 » Unless you are born from above… » (Jn 3,3) To welcome the grace of the resurrection requires to awaken into a new life.

Saint Joseph the first to experience that « the awakening » to a life in the Spirit consists in taking Mary home. In fact, in the greek gospel, the verb « to get up » means Joseph coming out of his sleep as well as Jesus waking up from the dead. In five occasions (cf. Mt 1,24;2,, Saint Matthew underlines that « upon waking up », Joseph brought home his wife, to make you understand that Joseph « resuscitated » by welcoming Mary and the Child.

Thus, by taking Mary for is wife, Saint Joseph reveals that she is the mother of all the baptised.
