The cold shoulders.
Imagine being Mary at Josephs family reunion.
Imagine being Joseph.
There you are.
With a wild story about an Immaculate Conception.
How was the family supposed to react?
Yet, they stayed faithful.
To their God.
To each other.
To the task before them.
4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5 in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. – Luke 1:4-5
