Homily #101219 ( 24min) Play - Today on the last Sunday in Advent Fr. Bonaventure McGuire explains how the marriage of Joseph is a true marriage in the light of Mary's Perpetual Virginity and how this means that St. Joseph's fatherhood is a true fatherhood over Jesus and true husband of Mary, and therefore true head of the Holy Family. Father stresses the great marvel that such a stupendous dignity of the stewardship of these awesome treasures were entrusted to a mere man. The key to making sense of these truths is that the marriage between Joseph and Mary was uniquely orientated to the incarnation and in turn the general orientation of all creation to this mystery makes sense of all history, of every little action done in love of Christ, and how the incarnation is then our one true hope.
