The Genealogy of Jesus
Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24A
The role St. Joseph played in the Incarnation must not be measured by the limited mentions of him in Scripture. His openness to the prompts of the Holy Spirit and his willingness to step out in faith welcomed Jesus into the world and kept him safe throughout his childhood.
Prayer: St. Joseph, you protect the Church in the same way you protected the child Jesus. Pray for us as we continue to live out his vision and mission.
