As promised, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, we have begun sharing our daily Mass preaching from our House of Studies in St. Louis, MO. This morning Fr. Simon Felix Michalski, O.P. preached. For the daily readings to accompany these preachings see the USCCB. March 19 is the feast of St. Joseph the husband of Mary and the the earthly father of Christ. He is also our foster father, our defender, our protector, and our intercessor. During his life St. Joseph was a perfect model not only of humility and obedience but also in responding promptly to God’s call. When called in a dream to leave behind all he had ever known and to take Mary as his wife, he did not hesitate. In the same way we are called to respond to God, promptly and without hesitation, trusting God just as Joseph did. St. Joseph, pray for us!
