From there, like a friend who shares his innermost self, God entrusts to Joseph what he loves most: the life of his Son and the salvation of his people. But could this man appreciate so much shared love? Oh yes! The closeness, intimacy and trust that God showed him were enough, not only to dispel his fears, but to rekindle his hope, his love and his dignity.
That dream completely renewed him from top to bottom. Therefore, rising without hesitation he assumed the task that God left in his hands. He reacted – now finally with a yes – like a truly righteous man.
