Principles and Practices - April 23

Our Lady's Trust

Hope in God becomes more vigorous and more manifest in the bitterest trials of life, as it lovingly commits to God all care for self. In this respect also the virtue of hope shone forth marvellously in Mary. Joseph, her spouse, is filled with doubt and anguish on her account. Yet she says nothing of the secret things she has heard from the Angel. She is silent by trusting in God that He will Himself reveal those profound mysteries to Joseph by other means.
