St. Joseph – Model of Manhood
Start Group with a prayer to Holy Spirit:
O, Holy Spirit, beloved of our souls, we adore You. Enlighten us, guide us, strengthen us, console us. Tell us what we should do. Give us your orders. We promise to submit ourselves to all that You desire of us and to accept all that you permit to happen to us. Let us only know Your will.
Someone should then read the scripture verse:
“He came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother named Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this man get all this?” (Matthew 13:54-56)
- Do I show my wife and children the face of God the Father? How?
- What traits did St. Joseph have that I want to develop in my own life?
- What practical things must I do to be more like St. Joseph?
End with the Lord’s Prayer
