To be convinced how much the intercession of St. Joseph prevails with Jesus Christ, we have only to consider these words of Evangelist: “And he was subject to them.” The Son of God employed thirty years assiduously obeying Joseph and Mary!
It was sufficient for Joseph, by the least word or sign, to show that he wished Him to do anything, Jesus immediately obeyed. This humble obedience of Jesus teaches us that the dignity of Joseph is above that of all other Saints, except that of the Queen of Saints.
Let us hear what St. Teresa says of the confidence which should place in the protection of St. Joseph:
“To the other Saints,it appears that the Lord may have granted power to succor us on particular occasions; but to this Saint, as experience proves, He has granted power to help us on all occasions. Our Lord world teach us that, as He is nwo pleased to grant whatever Saint asks for in heaven. Others who I have recommended to have recourse to Joseph, have known this form experience. I never knew any one who was particularly devout to him, that did not continually advance more and more in virtue. For the love of God, let him who believes not this make his own trial. And I do not know how any one can think of the Queen of th Angels, at the time when she labored so much in the infancy and childhood of Jesus, and not return thanks to Joseph for the assistance which he rendered both to the Mother and to the Son.”
We should be particularly devout to Saint Joseph, that he may obtain for us a happy death. . Virgomaterdei.com
