St. Joseph was a very brave man. When Mary was pregnant with Jesus, Joseph didn’t abandon her. He didn’t shame her. He didn’t let anyone else hurt her. Instead, he stood by her side. He defended the life she carried, Jesus Christ. He protected Jesus when he was the most vulnerable — when he was an unborn baby.
And we are all called to do the same — to protect and defend the sanctity of every human life. Let’s pray for a greater respect for human life worldwide. Additionally, please pray with us for all those who are affected by the coronavirus worldwide.
