What Dreams May Come - An Advent Recollection on St. Joseph with Bishop Chito Tagle

During Advent, we prepare to celebrate and worship the Child Emmanuel and the Virgin Mother. But what about the Head of the Holy Family, St. Joseph?

We seldom recollect how St. Joseph made the difficult decision to take in Mary as his wife after the Angel of the Lord told him in a dream that the Virgin Mother was carrying the Child of God.

We rarely praise St. Joseph for his heroism: he saved the pregnant Mary from being stoned to death by the townsfolk. We always seem to forget: St. Joseph took care of the Mother and the Child and protected them.

This Advent, let us look back at the moment when St. Joseph had a dream that ultimately led to the salvation of humankind.
