ST JOSEPH GENUINE FOLLOWER OF JESUS

Joseph 7

 

St. Joseph was the type of the message of that Gospel that Jesus was to announce as the program in the redemption of mankind, once he left the little workshop at Nazareth and began his mission as prophet and teacher. St. Joseph is the model of those humble ones that Christianity raises to great destinies, and he is the proof that in order to be good and genuine followers of Christ there is no need of “great things”; it is enough to have the common, simple, human virtues, but they need to be true and authentic.
