St Joseph listened to his dream and did what the angel of the Lord asked of him. He was completely open to what the angel asked of him even although it wasn’t part of his original plan. Feast of St Joseph 20th March, Matthew 1:16,18-21,24.
It is not easy doing the will of God. May be if it is easy then it probably isn’t the will of God.
We notice that St Joseph makes no deals with God. He doesn’t look for signs or get angry when things don’t go his way. He just gets on with doing God’s will.
Let us pray today asking St Joseph to assist us to do God’s will and to help us to discern our vocation.
