Joseph Sticks with Mary by Lily Padula

Joseph Sticks with Mary

His wife was pregnant, and it wasn’t his.

Technically they were not fully married yet. They weren’t far enough in the process for consummation, but legally he’d have to file for divorce.

He’d decided to do it quietly to save her public humiliation.

Then, in a dream an angel told him:

Do not to be afraid.
Marry her, the child is conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Call him Jesus. He will save his people from their sins.

By the time he woke, Joseph’s divorce was no longer an option.
