I wonder what it feels like to be told that you are fostering a child, but then find out that He is the Son of the most High. Joseph certainly accepted the challenge. He probably wondered how Mary found her way into his heart, or perhaps he wanted to call it quits, but we know that St. Joseph stayed. Sometimes staying is sufficient. During Lent St. Joseph teaches us about commitment and to wait with Jesus – even if words are not readily available, silence pierces deeper.
