Fatherhood and Obedience

"the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, 'Rise, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child's life are dead.'
He rose, took the child and his mother, and went to the land of Israel. " (Matthew 2: 19-21)

St. Joseph,

Thank you for being such a wonderful example of fatherhood. May I always use you as an example of a perfect father. One who protects his family. One who loves and teaches his beloved child.

And one who is fully obedient to God.

I ask that you pray for me. Please ask your adopted Son to please give me the grace to be fully obedient to Him.

Thank you again and may your shining example of love and humility lead me to Him.
