Reflection: Weakness

Joseph the father of Jesus was the village artisan who also farmed. He was probably poorer than his neighbors who farmed exclusively and had more land. Jesus knew from experience how “Caesar” in all its forms could crush the poverty stricken and unprotected. He was poor and knew the desperation of the weak.
