The Bible does not mention how old Joseph was when he married Mary. Nor when Jesus was born. It doesn’t even mention how old he was when he died. In fact, very little was written about Joseph despite the fact that his presence as husband, head of the family and the putative father of Jesus Christ was transcendental in God’s plans.
During all the screams and pain the midwife said: “It’s a boy”, he will be a strong man. But no one knows what the child will have to face in life, whether it will be easy or difficult to cope, no one knows how many hits he will receive, nor does anyone know whether it will be a destiny’s toy at puberty or what kind of person he will become. But something is true that the child will have to fight to be a good father if he wants to achieve his happiness.
Many of my friends complain that Father’s Day goes almost unnoticed by their families. That in many occasions they are the ones who jokingly remind them. Some of them say that it is as if it did not have relevance because according to history the celebration of Mother’s Day is celebrated first, then the day of the child and at last the Father’s Day. Some of them believe that, due to the exemplified stereotype of the father figure as a rude, rough, strong man who is not afraid of fate, it is that he does not receive much attention, because it does not agree with his image.
