Precious demonstration! Perfect to undo our self judgment about intelligence the way the world values it.

Good demonstration of the falsity of form. Giuseppe rises higher and higher by Grace to the position of a Saint while those around him struggle to climb the ladder of the church hierarchy. Those in a seemingly higher position cast doubt, scorn, and judgement upon him along the way, and he is maligned by the world, but a wise Bishop sees his worth. And while almost thrown out for breaking a statue, Giuseppe sees its real value even in the broken pieces.

I found this free to watch on Youtube

Save this form?
Would you like to save this form for future reference? If not the form will be deleted once you have viewed the results page.
The desire for something to be different than what it is now is keeping you from the peace of God.
Are you ready to release this desire to the Holy Spirit?
