This is the second sermon of seventeenth-century French theologian and bishop, Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, to be featured on this podcast. Like the first, it takes St. Joseph for its subject.

Bossuet’s love for the hidden life is at the center of his devotion to St. Joseph, and is the virtue of Joseph which he most focuses upon in this sermon. His reflections here are remarkably appropriate for Advent, meditating as he does on both Joseph’s hidden life, as well as the hidden circumstances of Christ’s birth and life—and looking ahead to Christ’s Second Coming, when St. Joseph’s hidden greatness will truly be known.
