Once the angel was gone, Joseph woke up and took Mary into his home. « Exsurgens autem Ioseph » (Mt 1,24).

As soon as the angel left her, Mary went quickly to Elisabeth’s house. « Exsurgens autem Maria » (Lc 1,39)

For Mary and Joseph, the word of the Lord gives breath to a vital urgency, both of them show the same eagerness for the Lord’s will to be done. They promptly come out of themselves and embrace the motion of Life.

Mary and Joseph, take us with you in the Resurrection impulse, bring us into the dance with the Holy Spirit.
