Give joy to the soul of Your servant, for to You I lift up my soul.  – Ps 86:4

Reflection. St. Joseph was a man of peace and joy.  He was also a grateful man.  How important it is for us to be grateful in all circumstances.  The variety of gifts we all possess in common gives balance to the Church; therefore, we can rejoice in the gifts God gives to others.

Prayer. Father of us all, let my soul rejoice in Your love.  Give me the grace to imitate the virtue of good St. Joseph.  Help me to be humble and strong.
