Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel,
20 March 2017 Monday- The feast of Saint of Saint Joseph the betrothed of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
So many valuable ,glittering treasures are spinning, swirling around us , trying to catch our eyes , advertised in a noisy cacophony , I wonder which one should I grab !
Saint Joseph had to make decisions as well several times and he always decided in favour of the life conceived ,the Child that was born , by Jesus Christ , because his family, the protection , service of his adopted child is more important than anything else for him!! When they flee to Egypt , he is capable of leaving everything behind : home, friends, “work” , because the Child, the Life are in danger they set out , because for Saint Joseph the most important treasure is his beloved family !!!!
May Saint Joseph be our role model , lets dare with a silent stubbornness to decide in favour of life , the acceptance of a child , should be in all our decisions , our family with immortal souls , also heading towards eternal life with us be the first !!
translated by dr k.e.
Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the holy Spirit.
Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.
She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
