I was recently asked at the entrance gate of Planned Parenthood I-45, the largest late term abortion facility in the Western World, by a side walk counselor if Jesus, the son of Mary and Joseph, had "brothers." or half brothers in that Joseph assumed to be much older than Mary had been married before and had sons by a previous marriage. Therefore "brothers" is used in the Gospel of Mathew "Your Mother and brothers" in regard to Jesus. The Church teaches that Mary, Joseph, and Jesus, the Holy Family, are all together Semper Virgo. Perpetual virginity is fundamental to the vocation of Mary as the Mother of God completely consecrated to bearing the Word Made Flesh, as virginity is for Jesus, His Bride is the Mystical Body the Church. Perpetual virginity is completely cogent for Joseph, the second most holy creature created by God in his vocation as holy father of Jesus. There is no evidence whatsoever that Joseph was previously married (and divorced?) and had sons from a previous marriage. Non-Catholics, Cathars, Protestants and Evangelicals are quick to misinterpret scripture to denigrate Mary and most especially Joseph wrongly claiming to be solely worshiping Jesus as saviour. This is not Apostolic Catholicism but the opposite. Mary and Joseph are co-workers in all ways holy with Jesus their Son and Lord. Jesus as God honored his human mother and father in grace for their holiness. In following the example of Christ in all ways as his true disciples, so does His Mystical Body the Church.
