We can draw close to St. Joseph by sharing with him the littleness of everyday life. Most of the life of Jesus, the Incarnate Son of God, does not appear in Sacred Scripture. In fact, the vast majority of His life does not appear in Sacred Scripture. Rather, in the ordinary littleness of everyday life, He simply shared life with Mary and Joseph. In this way, St. Joseph appears as the father of the littleness of ordinariness.
The Incarnation is the center of all God’s plans for mankind. Two millennia ago, the Word became flesh. He dwelt among us for thirty-three years, completed His Paschal mystery, rose from the dead, and forty days later left this earth in His Ascension. However, He still wished to remain among us so that we could encounter Him in His humanity with its life-giving and medicinal power, and therefore He established the sacraments of the Church to be the principal means of encounter with His humanity between His Ascension and His Second Coming. St. Leo the Great said: “What was to be seen of our Redeemer has passed over into the Sacraments,” so that “faith might be more perfect and more firm.”
