Day 27 - Joseph, Model of Faith

As we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, we look to the husband of Mary as a model of faith.  He trusted in God when he told him to raise Jesus as his own.  He trusted in God when he had to take his family to Bethlehem and then into exile in Egypt.  Do we have the same trust that he did?  Do we have his faith?  Do we stay faithful to God in the face of adversity as he did?  May St. Joseph be an example for us on this day on how much we need to trust in the will and the love of our God.
