Seeing St. Joseph in his workshop, in silence, during a long time we thought that he was in the background, in his corner, insignificant. It is that we attache too much importance to the tintamarre of the egos. The life of St. Joseph has modesty as a principle of measurement. Joseph never yielded to the idolatry of the ego, extroverted and talkative, multiplying the fragile justifications to conceal his ugliness. Joseph, on the contrary, has experienced an internalized justice, the humble silence of faith, in considering his life from the point of God. Saint Joseph has never isolated himself, he has forgotten himself.
