Pope calls on Catholics to find in St. Joseph inspiration for family life

.- During Wednesday’s general audience, addressing pilgrims in Polish, Pope John Paul II recalled that Friday is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, spouse of Our Lady.

“This solemnity,” he said, “urges families of today, comforted by the example of Mary and Joseph, who lovingly cared for the Word Incarnate, to be inspired by their lifestyle when making daily decisions and to gather strength to overcome difficulties.”

“Only in an authentic family, one that is united and loving, can children mature in a healthy way, following the example of unconditional love, fidelity, reciprocal self-giving and respect for life,” he concluded.
