Saint Joseph, how did you manage everyday life, sheltering the Son of God in your home? Once the initial surprise wore off, you had to go back to the workshop and Mary had to go back to the kitchen! Ordinary life resumed as usual, and yet nothing was the same: hence-forth all your attention was directed to this Child, who became the sole object of your thought, word, and deed. Saint Joseph, teach us to focus also on Him who is “with us always, even to the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20).
