Together, with the Word in their hearts, Mary and Joseph thus gave a home to God’s mercy and faithfulness. With the Word before their eyes, they contemplated it and pondered it with the poor and with foreigners. With the Word in their arms, they joined the fugitives and refugees. With the Word in their hand they became pilgrims with their people. With the Word treasured in their hearts, they lived discipleship beyond measure. Such dedication did not escape the attention of Fr. Dehon. With them he learned this way of trusting and grateful abandonment to the will of the Father.
