I think that Joesph is a favorite of mine in the nativity. I think that most of us find ourselves in the “Joesph” situation. We are the one supporting the main figure. I can’t imagine what went through Joesph’s head. Did he wonder if the angel really came to him, did he wonder if Mary was lying? Through Joesph I learn to trust the things that I “know” and that the supporting role is just as important as the “big” role. I think that Joseph is someone I’d like to meet someday and see how he felt the whole time. I hope he teaches a class in heaven about his life. I’d sit in the front row.
