Day 2 of the Novena to Saint Joseph

A Heritage of Fidelity

“God is rich in mercy.” (Ephesians 2:4)

The Second Book of Chronicles speaks about those who have gone before us, “They built up infidelities.” (2 Chronicles 36:14)

And what about us? I think that this is something to question ourselves about. Nonetheless, God does not abandon us. He send us messengers to support us and to exhort us to stay on the right path if we have strayed onto a false one. God’s fidelity continues to surround us, even if we ourselves have been unfaithful.

Saint Paul tells us, “God is rich in mercy.” (Ephesians 2:4) By the grace coming from him, God allows us to lead a life in conformity with his wishes and expectations.

The lifting up of the Son of Man (John 3:14-15) allows all those who believe in him to have eternal life.

Saint Joseph, you agreed to cooperate with God’s plan for the salvation of humanity: you became the protector of the Holy Family. Allow my life to be in accord with that which the Lord expects of me for the salvation of all humanity.

Make a Novena to Saint Joseph, from March 10 to 18, 2018.
