What Would Joseph Do?

Pope Francis is said to have a small statue of a sleeping St. Joseph. The Pope reportedly places slips of paper with his written concerns underneath the saint.

St. Joseph received dreams and directions while asleep and acted upon them, as is recorded in Scripture.

I would like to ask the Pope if he has any requests that St Joseph is sleeping upon regarding the sex abuse crisis. Today he asked the world to fast and pray regarding Ukraine. Without a doubt that is an urgent need.

Will the sex abuse of children and the neglect to address it by the hierarchy ever merit a similar request?

What would St Joseph do if his Son were sexually abused by a priest? Would he expose his Son to the danger of it by bringing Him to worship at a place where such things continue to occur despite some who say it’s been solved? There are still reports that currently make headlines.

What would he do as a father?
