Sunday Sermon, October 23 -- The Rosary with St Joseph, the Finding in the Temple, part 4 of 5 (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

Sunday, October 23 -- The Finding in the Temple.

The slaughtering of the Innocents occurred about 15 months after Jesus was born, and the Holy Family returns to the Holy Land at about his 7th year.
The loss and finding of the Child occurs when Jesus is 12 years old. In this mystery, we must recognize that Jesus did nothing wrong, neither did Mary or Joseph do anything wrong -- rather, the three days he was lost we a prophetic teaching in preparation for his death and resurrection.

Finally, we recognize that Jesus was perfectly obedient to St Joseph for the first 30 years of his life on earth. If we are true Christians (Christ-like), we will be totally consecrated to St Joseph. A Christian is one who is known to be the "child of St Joseph".
