How to Respond to Crisis (According to St. Joseph)

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Tuesday March 19, 2024

How do we respond to the crisis' of our lives? We all know they will hit us eventually, like the next coming ocean wave. Today, as the Church celebrates the Solemnity of St. Joseph, we can find inspiration in his example. In Scripture, we always find Joseph facing a trial. His betrothed wife is pregnant. Herod wants to kill his newborn son. Jesus is lost in the Temple in Jerusalem. Crisis abounds. His reaction shows us how we are to act when smacked in the face by life.
