A reflection from Sue Mosteller for our 2011 advent season.In the Gospel, Joseph received the startling news that his wife, Mary, was pregnant. Sad and terribly disillusioned, Joseph decides how he will move forward. Scripture says, “Because Joseph her husband, was faithful to the law and yet did not want to expose Mary to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.” Joseph chose the most loving direction he could imagine – and only after that did the angel come to help him.
David’s constant good humour and amazing ability to hit the nail on the head with his comments has seen us through many a hard day in community. Here are but a few examples:
I’m thankful that in the past, Joseph trusted his intuitions so that Jesus could come into the world. And I’m deeply grateful for David’s constant fidelity in the present that inspires our journey together!
