Today is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, of the house of David. At the time of the Annunciation, he was working as a carpenter in Nazareth. He trusted his angelic vision, accepted Mary as his wife, and dutifully traveled to Bethlehem for the census. Later, he participated in the Presentation, led his family safely into Egypt and when called, faithfully returned to Nazareth. In other words, his decisions were integral in God’s plan for humanity and this holy man chose well.
