Dear Family of Mary!
October 25, 1994 “Dear children! I am with you and I rejoice today because the Most High has granted me to be with you and to teach you and to guide you on the path of perfection. Little children, I wish you to be a beautiful bouquet of flowers which I wish to present to God for the day of All Saints. I invite you to open yourselves and to live, taking the saints as an example. Mother Church has chosen them, that they may be an impulse for your daily life. Thank you for having responded to my call!”
The Saint who picked us for the Rosary yesterday was St. Joseph, Husband of Mary! I felt like St. Joseph was reminding us not to forget him. He is with us in a very special way these days. And we need him very much. I want to share a beautiful homily given on the Feast of St. Joseph, just two weeks ago. It was given my Fr. Miljenko Steko, the provincial. His words are strong and powerful, full of faith and hope. St. Joseph is also strong, powerful and full of hope. And he is with us in these days because we need him.

We should imitate that. In that atmosphere we should see our own life, our own relationship towards time and towards eternity. That God, just like Joseph in his dream, in our dream, in our public dream, may take away all the fears. Do not be afraid, God said to Joseph. May He say that to us. St. Teresa of Avila says that Joseph does not refuse any desire that God asked of him. Surely, he will not refuse us if we pray to him.
Thank you, Fr. Miljenko, for this wonderful and hopeful homily about St. Joseph. I believe we need St. Joseph in a very special way in these days. Please St. Joseph, hear our prayers and stay with us, as we cope with this pandemic, and all the other obstacles to life in our day. Be our protector and guide!!
