♦♦Saint Joseph and the Holy House of Nazareth♦♦

         One month before her final appearance, the Virgin Mary told the  three children, “In October, St. Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus  to bless the world.”  And so, on October the 13th during the miracle of  the sun, St. Joseph appeared with the Child Jesus and the Virgin Mary. 

  The Holy Family stood near the sun, while St. Joseph, together with the  Child Jesus, gave their blessing to our troubled world.

         This vision of St. Joseph with the Holy Family reminds us we  should pattern our home life after the example of the Holy House of  Nazareth.  We should be living a life of sacrifice like St. Joseph, who  perfected his daily duties as a carpenter by working for Jesus and  Mary.  We should be living a life of prayer like Mary, who treasured the  mysteries of Jesus' life in her Immaculate Heart.  And we should be  living a life of obedience like Jesus, who came into the world not to do  His will but the will of His Heavenly Fatther. 

        At Fatima, St. Joseph appeared as the head of the Holy Family to  encourage us to imitate the desires of his own heart, to live a life of  deep intimacy with Jesus and Mary.  So, let our prayer be:  “Oh good  St. Joseph, who at Fatima came to bless the world, bless our families  and teach us the holy virtues that have so exalted your name forever.   Oh good St. Joseph, teach us to live the message of Fatima.  Amen.”
