Timely (for the UK) Message of the Pope about St. Joseph
This evening (Monday 20th) a short series begins on UK TV (BBC?) about the Nativity. In an interview in the Daily Telegraph, the writer admitted that he had come to believe in God and that Jesus is the Son of God, although he has (as yet?) no patience with "organised religion" or "the Churches". There is some good news here, but the bad news is that in order to make his point - which is really about St. Joseph "coming to faith" he is portraying the relationship of Mary and Joseph as one of resentment. He actually says that on the journey to Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph "hate each other". I shall not be watching it.
Here is the Pope's message about St. Joseph, aimed especially at priests.
St. Joseph, Guardian and Protector of Holy Church, pray for us and for all families and vulnerable children.
