St Joseph’s Greatness

Joseph 7

 

“Joseph! What an unexampled distinction! – The Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven, the Mistress of the world, called you master.  I do not know which excites the more wonder-Mary’s humility or Joseph’s blessedness. But both are surpassed beyond compare by the Child Jesus, who is blessed unto everlasting and yet it is written of him that he was subject to them: he who created the sun and its uprising was subject to a carpenter; he to whom every knee must bend in Heaven, on earth and under the earth was subject to a woman working at her loom.  I wish I had the words to explain a mystery so deep and hidden from the world, this astonishing and worshipful trinity of Jesus and Joseph and Mary.”         Jean Gerson  1363-1429  From the sermon on the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin, preached at the Council of Constance in 1416
