“Passing to this Easter joy is not only an exultant experience, it is also a challenging one. Because it means moving from a comfortable and reasonable Christian life (adapted to this world) to a more evangelical pilgrimage life, ready to say “here I am” at any time. Coming out of the grave is to passionately want to have others share in the same joy we experienced. ‘Something which has existed since the beginning, that we have heard, and we have seen with our own eyes; that we have watched and touched with our hands: the Word, who is life-this is our subject.’ (1 Jn 1. 1)” (Fr Gustavo Agín SCJ).

“Joseph saw Jesus grow daily ‘in wisdom and in years and in divine and human favour” (Lk 2:52). As the Lord had done with Israel, so Joseph did with Jesus: he taught him to walk, taking him by the hand; he was for him like a father who raises an infant to his cheeks, bending down to him and feeding him (cf. Hos 11:3-4). In Joseph, Jesus saw the tender love of God: ‘As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear him’ (Ps 103:13).
