St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin
“The Lord said to him in a dream” …
Today we celebrate St. Joseph, Spouse of Mary. Scripture says very little about Joseph but what it says is quite profound: “The Lord said to him in a dream”.
We know that after he decided to divorce Mary secretly, which made him a man of honour, the voice of God told him to do the opposite. Our dreams are our friends. They help us know what is taking place in the subconscious which should be tuned in to God. The only way it would be of help is if our consciousness is tuned in to God.
This Lent let us tune in to God so deeply that our innermost being, our subconscious, will be in sync with His plans for us. We can do this by reading and meditating on the Word of God each day, and by praying often throughout the day. Live in God’s presence! Always be conscious that God is there!
Lord, open our being to your presence. Help us to move and live in you. Amen.
