An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:20-21

What a humble God-fearing young man Joseph was, so willing to trust and obey. God had chosen precisely every detail of the entrance of his Son into this world. Let us praise him as we contemplate with awe the unfolding of his plan of salvation.
