Daily homily thoughts, 3/20

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph. Ite ad Joseph. Go to Joseph. Pope Francis has inspired me to do just this. The pontiff–today is his liturgical anniversary–always puts his intentions beneath his statue of St. Joseph. This is the reason I bought my St. Joseph statue. Joseph, you see, has a lot of free time; most people just go Mary. But Joseph is an incredible intercesor. He also offers us an example of a humble, strong, faithful man. God put his Son Jesus into Joseph’s hands. And Joseph put everything in God’s hands. It is not too different for us.
