St. Joseph's Dream
Joseph's dream message is one of comfort, one of affirmation, one of direction. As a spiritual director, I like the idea of dreams as spiritual direction. Here God uses a dream to assure Joseph that his original desire to marry Mary is still viable. Apparently, Joseph was paying attention and married into God's future. For those who would pay attention, how might a dream affirm our righteous desires and invite us into God's future?
