Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We desire the house of the Lord, much as you did, Lord Jesus. Our eternal yearning should be to rejoin our Father in heaven, to achieve the sanctity which is possible for each of us. Fuel our desire, Lord Jesus, for that one thing above all else which is worth desiring. Amen.
