beNotAfraidToday’s Gospel

“’Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home,’” (Matthew 1:20).

Daily Lent Reflection

St Joseph is one of the great examples of a person of faith. Matthew’s Gospel describes him as a man of honour, and he is faced with what is humanly a very difficult situation: his betrothed wife is expecting a baby and he is not the father. What must have been his thoughts and feelings when he found out? However, he is able to trust the voice in his dream.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will ask myself where do I hear God’s voice telling me not to be afraid? Am I able to trust? Or at least to pray for trust and courage?
