Bishop Rodrigues: In a real way Joseph is inspired by God
Joseph loved Mary and had a profound respect for her. Being a just man, he was always open to doing God’s will, and it was in that willingness to do God’s will that Joseph received a message from God to take Mary as his wife and even to name the child she bears.
“Behold, a faithful and prudent steward, whom the Lord set over his household” Cf. Lk12:42
