    Hail, Mary, full of grace,
    the Lord is with thee;
    blessed art thou among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God,
    pray for us sinners,
    now and at the hour of our death.
    Amen.

We are living in a world of speeches. We are accustomed to listening to people speaking endlessly nowadays. The well-crafted words count in the public sphere. Even people expect us to articulate our ideas and thoughts in clear terms. When we attend, for example, an interview, we are judged at that moment based on how well we expressed our ideas in words. In other words, our words and speeches are equated with our values, convictions, and the whole personality. To a great extent, it is very true that our words reveal who we are. But our Christian life experiences reveal to us that our actions show who we are more than our words. This month we are invited to reflect on the person St. Joseph, the husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus who spoke less but did much. He was a faithful husband to Mary and a caring father to Jesus; he knew the highs and lows of family struggles; he showed courage, prudence, trust, and patience in God who would not abandon him as various events in the family took numerous twists and turns.
