Our Lady and St Joseph
During an encounter with diocesan priests in Guatemala, St Josemaria, the founder of Opus Dei, talked about devotion to our Lady and St Joseph in the life of a priest.
You are putting everything on a firm base.
Love for the Blessed Eucharist, love for the Master, as you call him here,
-- how beautiful! The Master! It's true!
The Master!
And devotion to our Blessed Lady.
I know you have the same devotion as I do, deeply rooted in you.
I always show this: my Rosary. This is my primary weapon,
it's what keeps me in touch with our Lady. It's got lots of medals,
and I've just been given another one.
I kiss them all -- I don't mind saying so --
I kiss them one by one. I say my Rosary just like a little old lady.
Keep going!
Thank you, Father.
And then St Joseph, whom you also love very deeply, you love him so much.
He's our Patron Saint.
And I call him my Father and Lord, and I say and write,
'whom I love so much' -- I love him a lot.
Obviously, you only have to look at what he was in his time: a Patriarch,
that's what he was, the authority he had, which was always recognized by God himself and by the Mother of God.
I love St Joseph for his purity, his love for work, his courage,
his obedience to God's suggestions, when in a dream an angel tells him to go.
'But isn't he the Son of God, God himself? Why does he have to hide?'
-- St Joseph doesn't say that. He goes.
And he takes Jesus into Egypt, and so on.
We won't go through the whole life of the Holy Patriarch. My son, you're doing well.
