Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
December 18, 2018 - Tuesday
Gospel: Mt: 1: 18-25
Emmanuel, God is with us!
The situation presented in the gospel must have been difficult for Joseph since he loved Mary so much. The words “Emmanuel” which means “God is with us!” must have made Joseph braver and obedient to God’s will.
Like Joseph, we are invited to brave our own battles and be obedient to God’s will because God is always with us every step of the way.
