The Glory of St. Joseph

church-722397_1280

“The name of trustee is a sign of esteem and an indication of a man’s integrity. When we are going to entrust something to somebody, we choose one of our friends whose virtue is best recognized, whose fidelity is most reliable, whom we know intimately and trust thoroughly. What then must be St. Joseph’s glory? God made him trustee, not simply of blessed Mary, whose angelic purity is so precious in his eyes, but also of his own Son, who is the special object of his love and our sole hope of salvation: as guardian of Jesus Christ, St. Joseph was made trustee of the treasure that is common to God and man. No eloquence can add anything to the grandeur and majesty of that.”   Bossuet
