Joseph was the first witness of
'The angel of the Lord appeared to
Joseph in a dream;
Joseph do not be afraid to take
as your wife, because
what has been conceived within her is
the work of the Holy Spirit.
Joseph did what the angel of the Lord
told him to do.'
- Matt 1: 21
This is why
Emilie called her religious family
'Congregation of the Sisters of
St. Joseph of the Apparition'.
