Lent calendar prayer and reflection for 20 March

Counting on the promise of God, he did not doubt or disbelieve, but drew strength from faith and gave glory to God, fully convinced that whatever God promised he had power to perform.

Today we remember Saint Joseph, who just like Abraham before him, drew strength from his faith in the most trying circumstances.  

It took enormous faith to believe what the angel of the Lord told him (Matthew 1:16, 18-21): that Mary would conceive a child by the power of the Holy Spirit. 


Lord, in the midst of darkness and uncertainty, help us to keep the flame of our faith alive. Amen. Saint Joseph, pray for us.
