QUOTATION: Saint. Joseph

Mother Teresa of Calcutta
When [St. Joseph] saw Our Lady was pregnant-- that she was going to have a baby-- immediately he was hurt. But he loved Our Lady. Deep down in his heart her loved her and knew in his mind, "If I go to the priest and tell, immediately they will stone her." He did not know that Our Lady had conceived by the power of the Spirit, but he knew that if told she would be stoned-- and that if he was silent, he would be stoned. So what did he decide? "I will not tell. I will leave her and go away and people will blame me." This is love.
