so many desired to see and saw not, to hear and heard not, but even to carry Him in your arms,
to embrace Him, to clothe Him, to watch over Him....
"O St. Joseph, what others have only after death,
you had while still living; like the blessed in
heaven, you enjoyed God and lived close to Him. You clasped to your heart the Infant Jesus, you accompanied Him in the flight to Egypt, you
sheltered Him under your roof."
