Joseph is an icon for Christian discipleship. Although Joseph took his responsibility to preside over the Holy Family seriously, he also was not afraid to follow Jesus.
Jesus gets lost in the Temple and offers Mary and Joseph a glimpse at His divinity. Where is my glimpse at God today? Am I on the lookout for Jesus?
Dear Jesus, help me to follow where You lead me today. In doing so, grant me a glimpse at Your divinity. May I be faithful disciple of Your Love.
