Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, Son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
(Speak to the Holy Family using these words or your own.)
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for me, that I might have a heart that trusts God alone. Help me to encourage and learn from the children’s innocent trust in you.
