'Go to Joseph!': How Saint Joseph's Five Virtues Can Help You Find Strength in Silence

Saint Joseph’s quiet life really preaches louder than words! 🙌

On the 150th episode of “The Catholic Gentleman” podcast, John Heinen, Sam Guzman, and Devin Schadt discuss the remarkable life of Saint Joseph.

Here’s how his example offers us a way to cultivate a spirit of quiet strength:

Embrace Silence in a Noisy World.

In our noisy world, Saint Joseph’s life teaches us the profound power of silence.

“God’s first language is silence,” Heinen says. He explains that Saint Joseph’s silent obedience to God’s will speaks volumes about his character.

Saint Joseph shows us that silence isn’t just the absence of noise, but a way to deepen our relationship with God.

Heinen says we should carve out more quiet moments to listen intently to God’s voice because from “a man who is devoted to silence comes forth an understanding of the will of the Father.”

Be Great Through Humility and Service.

We all want to live a meaningful life! Through a life of service and simplicity, Saint Joseph shows us that true greatness is not found in titles or achievements but in quiet surrender to God’s Will.

“Saint Joseph, despite being in the line of King David, found greatness in humility,” Heinen says.

Make Discerned Decisions in Life.

Saint Joseph’s unwavering obedience to God’s Will, even when challenging, shows his profound trust in God.

“Doing is the beginning of Joseph’s Way,” Schadt says.

He adds that Saint Joseph was an effective leader because he listened and obeyed God, giving us a model to make discerned decisions in our own lives.

The gentlemen say that by living out Saint Joseph’s five virtues–silence, obedience, authority, sacrificial love, and humility—we can learn to cultivate a spirit of quiet strength just like him!
