Ave Maria Meditations

Saint Joseph was chosen by the eternal Father as faithful provider and guardian of His principal treasures: His Son and His Spouse. And Joseph carried out this task most faithfully.

Is he not the chosen and singular person through whom and under whom Christ was introduced to the world in an ordered and honorable fashion? If, therefore, the whole Church is indebted to the Virgin Mother because through Mary she was made worthy of receiving Christ, it follows that after Mary, she also owes to Joseph a particular gratitude and reverence.

Indeed, Joseph is the terminus of the Old Testament in whom the dignity of the patriarchs and prophets attained the promised fruit. For he is the only one who possessed what the Divine Goodness promised to them. Now in heaven Christ completes and perfect the familiarity, reverence, and highest honors that He showed to Joseph on earth.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
