Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, based on 2 Samuel 7:4–5a, 12–14a, 16
The word of the LORD came to Nathan: Go and tell my servant David: When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come forth from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. Your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me; your throne shall be established forever.
