So many Christmas songs speak of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and explore, more or less, her amazing experience. However, as I was working on this project, I found myself intrigued with what Joseph’s feelings might have been. How does a mortal man act father to a God? How does Joseph say to Jesus, “Follow me, Son, and I’ll show you the way”? I can only imagine what kind of weight the carpenter felt on his shoulders as he contemplated his role of shepherding the Holy Child, preparing Him to take His place as Savior of the world.
