This illustration shows that when Joseph was in his slumber, God talks to him through the voice of an angel in his dream. Saint Joseph was a hardworking man and he was able to sense and follow God’s will even when he was in a deep sleep.

  • Do we have a good sleep or a restless sleep because of anxieties, depression, stress or any forms of nightmare that disturbs us badly?
  • Do we spend time with God in silence, to hear and listen to his voice?
  • What do we do when we are not able to sleep?


  • Do we trust God enough to give him all our worries and fears in exchange for his peace which surpasses all understanding?
  • Do we know of anyone who is struggling to have a sound sleep but suffering from anxieties? How can we help them?

St. Joseph, patron saint of the Universal Church, Pray for us
