Saint Joseph

  1. 1. SaintJoseph<br />Joseph Dodier<br />Grade:5B<br />
  2. 2. Saint Joseph is the person that spent the most earthly hours and days with Jesus.<br />1 - 100<br />He was perfectly conformed to the Divine Will and so resigned to the dispositions of Heaven that he ever repeated&quot; May the Will of God ever be done in me!&quot; <br />
  3. 3. He rarely spoke with men, but continually with God, whose Will he desired to perform. <br />Saint Joseph is the person that spent the most earthly hours and days with Jesus. <br />Eight days after his birth, St. Joseph brings Jesus to the temple for circumcision, a requirement of the Jewish faith. <br />
  4. 4. Eight days after his birth, St. Joseph brings Jesus to the temple for circumcision, a requirement of the Jewish faith. <br />At this time, St. Joseph gives the baby the name “Jesus” and takes legal paternal custody, just as he was instructed by an angel in his dream. <br />Once settled in Nazareth, with Jesus of an unknown age though certainly still in boyhood, Saint Joseph supports the family as a carpenter. <br />
  5. 5. When the Bible speaks of God “justifying” someone, it means that God, the all-holy or “righteous” One, so transforms a person that the individual shares somehow in God’s own holiness, and hence it is really “right” for God to love him or her.<br />The quality meant a lot more than faithfulness in paying debts.<br />The Bible pays Joseph the highest compliment: he was a “just” man. <br />
  6. 6. The rest we can easily surmise.<br />By saying Joseph was “just,” the Bible means that he was one who was completely open to all that God wanted to do for him.<br />It is no contradiction of Joseph’s manly holiness that he decided to divorce Mary when she was found to be with child. <br />
