God assigns Joseph by Basil of Caesarea

“In Joseph, Mary had a spouse and guardian of her life, so that there would be a witness who was familiar with her purity and so that calumniators would not be given the pretext to accuse her of having violated her virginity.”

Basil of Caesarea , On the Holy Generation of Christ PG 31, 1464 B.

God’s plans and wisdom always surrounds us. He protects us, put us circumstances to work with Him. The same as he did with Virgin Mary. He allowed this marriage to protect her. Do you see how God planned the contexts around you to get you to work with Him?

If you are interested in more quotes on Virgin Mary, you can find them in Mary and the Fathers of the Church on Amazon in both in Kindle and paperback formats.
