The Inner Life of St. Joseph

St. Joseph, Guido Reni

FROM Daily Meditations in March on St. Joseph by Rev. R.F. Clarke, S.J.:

St. Joseph had a privilege on earth which for all other saints is reserved for the eternal Paradise, of being in the continual company of his God, of gazing on the Sacred Humanity of the Incarnate Word, of hearing from Him words of love and gratitude, of drinking in delicious draughts of heavenly delight from the words and looks of the Incarnate God. His life must have been one long ecstasy. If those who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment received an inflow of heavenly virtue, what must he have received who nursed Him in infancy, and bore Him the closest company in youth and manhood!

Pray for us, St. Joseph
