If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.
The Feast of St. Patrick always reminds me of my grandma who passed way on his feast day back in 1981. She was well-devoted to St. Patrick as every Irishman is... or should be!
St. Bridget of Sweden
Of course I couldn't find an actual quote from St. Joseph as he didn't say a word. He just acted upon the Will of God. Something to learn from there...
† Idleness is the enemy of the soul; and therefore the brethren ought to be employed in manual labor at certain times, at others, in devout reading.
† And let them first pray together, that so they may associate in peace.
† He should first show them in deeds rather than words all that is good and holy.
† The sleepy like to make excuses.
† For at all times we must so serve Him with the good things He has given us, that he may not, as an angry Father, disinherit his children, nor as a dread Lord, provoked by our evil deeds, deliver us to everlasting punishment as wicked servants who refuse to follow Him to glory.
I mean what is not to love about this man of great wisdom?
