Just and righteous

Apart from his being a carpenter, these are two modifiers usually attached to Joseph.
And no more.

We cannot attribute any line he delivered. No words of wisdom we could quote from him. We know much nothing of him.

He seemed so comfortable to be in the background.

And yet, he was near to Jesus.

Being just and righteousness are NOT characteristics affixed to superheroes. But the entire Church wears something "yellow" today, setting aside the purple clothes she's been using for the past three weeks or so in order to pay homage to this great a saint.

Let us do as what he did even in our littlest way.
