Happy Feast of St. Joseph! St. Joseph, pray for us!
If you met a total stranger today and they professed their complete love for you, you would think they were crazy. We can’t love someone deeply if we don’t know them. Love requires knowledge. My question for you is do you know Jesus personally?
It’s hard for me to comprehend sometimes, but God not only knows me fully, he loves me perfectly. I can’t hide anything from Jesus. He sees me for who I am. His faithful and perfect love amazes me. His love invites us to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him.
Today Ennie Hickman (@Ennie4) challenges each of us to seek the truth about who God really is and promises that we will be blown away. This rings true in my life and I hope that this continues to ring true in your life this Lent.
Quick Facebook Sharing Tip for today:
Do the things you post on social media line up with the gospel? This means does the way we interact with people on social media build people up? Or are we negative and gossip? Do you have pictures on your accounts that show a false image of who you are?
Questions to consider on Social Media today:
1. What do you think Jesus would have been like to spend time with on earth?
2. How have you come to be in a personal relationship with Jesus?

I’ll close today with a quote from Pope Francis: “St. Joseph’s mission is certainly unique and unrepeatable, as Jesus is absolutely unique. However, in protecting Jesus, in teaching him how to grow in age, wisdom and grace, he is a model for every educator, and in particular for every father. … I ask for you the grace to be every closer to your children, allow them to grow, but be close, close! They need you, your presence, your closeness, your love. Be, for them, like St. Joseph: protectors of their growth in age, wisdom and grace. Guardians of their path, and educators: walk alongside them. And with this closeness, you will be true educators.”
