“Ite ad Joseph” or “Go to Joseph” is one of the most ancient cries of the Catholic Church.

“Joseph’s response to the angel’s message is immediate, trusting, magnanimous, self-sacrificing (his own fatherhood), chaste, and courageous. He is predisposed as just, but more than that. He looks to God, then Mary, and does so without fanfare.” Father Denis Wilde
