Tradition has it that God gave His people the first two Commandements, but as the latter were scared by the Divine Majesty and the power of these words, they prayed in order that henceforward Moses be the intermediary between God and them( cf Ex 20,19). Thus it was that Moses himself received the other eight Commandments.

Similarly, God, having resolved to give His two most precious gifts, the Son and his Mother, entrusted Saint Joseph with the whole mystery of incarnation.

Let us turn to Joseph, the depository of the mysteries of salvation.
