The Coolest Dad

 

A man whose words were not recorded, but it spoke wonders through his service

A man whose sense of justice allow him to listen to God

A man who was responsible for the care of the two most precious gifts God has given to humankind

A man who was humble enough to let his Holy wife take the main spot in a patriarchic society

A man whose silence were synonymous of mental prayer

A man whose deathbed was the most sweet and peaceful ever.

Today, the Church celebrates the feast of Saint Joseph, Patron of The Catholic Church and Foster Father of JesusChrist . Let’s remember what Saint Teresa of Avila said about this Holy Man:

I took for my advocate and lord the glorious Saint Joseph and commended myself earnestly to him; and I found that this my father and lord delivered me both from this trouble and also from other and greater troubles concerning my honor and the loss of my soul, and that he gave me greater blessings than I could ask of him. I do not remember even now that I have ever asked anything of him which he has failed to grant. I am astonished at the great favors which God has bestowed on me through this blessed saint, and at the perils from which He has freed me, both in body and in soul. To other saints the Lord seems to have given grace to succor us in some of our necessities but of this glorious saint my experience is that he succors us in them all and that the Lord wishes to teach us that as He was Himself subject to him on earth (for, being His guardian and being called His father, he could command Him) just so in Heaven He still does all that he asks.
