“….so concretely that it’s amusing.”
This is a good way of putting it! One of my own St. Joseph stories is that as my dad lay dying in hospice of a rare brain prion disease, I prayed a novena to St. Joseph for his soul and that the strange hospice care policies wouldn’t deprive him of his physical needs in his final days. St. Joseph came through concretely, as you say. On March 19th, the final day of my novena, my dad received last rites and viaticum and entered into his final agony, dying on March 21.
St Theresa of Avila relied on St. Joseph’s intercession implicitly, and he always came to her assistance in every need, particularly in her requests related to the convent foundations she established.
What a blessing that book has been to my spiritual life as a father. I would recommend it to everyone.
St. Joseph has become very special to me also, in some serious needs for intercession. For a long time, Father Z, I have remembered your words about asking for his help in a specific way. It works!
That’s an interesting interpretation of why Joseph was considering leaving Mary. Matthew seems clear that he was considering of leaving because he suspected she was pregnant by another man.
