Seven Sundays of St. Joseph

I feel sad that I did not know about the Seven Sundays of Saint Joseph until now.

This tradition meditates on St. Joseph for the seven weeks before his feast day, today.

In “In Conversation With God” volume 6, part of the meditation for the Seventh Sunday of St. Joseph is by Josemaría Escrivá:

I am sure Joseph knew how to lend a hand in many difficulties… His skilled work was in the service of others, to brighten the live of others in the town; and with a friendly word, a passing quip, he would restore confidence and happiness to those in danger of losing them. (P. 166 quoting Christ is passing by, 51)

How hard it is to remember that sometimes we’re the only thing in the flesh that is keeping someone from having a great day… Or perhaps we’re the one who can say that word that gives them hope. Go, confidently making friends! You may be the only time they can experience Christ!

You may be someone’s only physical connection to Our Lord!

You may be someone’s only chance of knowing the Gospel!

You may be someone’s only chance at having love on this earth, and so foreshadow the love of the Father!

Go! Go! Go boldly! Go lovingly! Go with St. Joseph!
