“DO YOU REALLY KNOW BETTER?” (Lk 2:41-51): 15 March 2008 (Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of Mary)
A few weeks ago I heard the song “Better than I” at a friend’s wedding. It was the first time I heard the song, a song that turned out to be from the animated musical, “Joseph: King of Dreams.”
In the movie, Joseph who has been sold by his brothers to Egyptian slave traders, eventually finds himself in prison again because he has been falsely accused. He feels abandoned by God. But as he remembers his life, he realizes that God has actually always been with him and has even orchestrated everything in his life to make sure that everything turns out right.
