The life of Saint Joseph has been truly overthrown by mysterious initiatives of God, initiatives beyond any possibility to understand.
Saint Joseph let himself to be driven lead because he was just and “just” is the man who lives of faith.
Where will the Lord drive him? He does not know it, God does not tell him, He does not explain him anything and he still obeys. It always said yes with his life, not with his words. It had never questions nor doubts.
And how fecund this silence is! It allows that between the word of God and the obedience of Saint Joseph there is not solution of continuity. God says and Saint Joseph does.
“Do not be afraid…”, and he does not fear, all troubles end.
“Stand up…”, and he stands up, there he is already on the road.
“Come back…”, and he is already coming back.
This immediacy of Saint Joseph at any nod of the Lord shows his beautiful inner disposition!
