Rebutting even more anti-Catholic objections to Marian Doctrine

  • Anti-Catholic said:

    If Joseph was a man 

    He was and is a man.
  • then this is something he would have needed to deal with.

    Have you ever read in Scripture that God will give you the grace you need to fulfill your vocation?
    2 Thessalonians 1:11
    King James Version (KJV)
    11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

    After all, one of the benefits of marriage is for the man and the woman to express their sexuality towards each other in holy and godly way.

    What do you think is a greater benefit? To serve God or to have sex with your spouse? This is what Scripture says:
    1 Corinthians 7:
    32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

    There is no reason to think Joesph did not have normal sexual desires and wanting to have children of his own. Same would apply to Mary. 

    You are projecting. To us, we are taught that God satisfies all our desires:
    Our Heart is Restless Until it rests in You
    Saint Augustine of Hippo

    Apparently, you are taught that the highest blessing is sex with your spouse. But that is wrong. We are made for God. St. Joseph and the Virgin Mary received a blessing beyond calculation. They were united to their God in this life.

    Children without brothers and sisters do not experience family life the same way that those that do. Does not mean they are less but they don't have this experience.

    Does that make them less human? You admit it doesn't, so why even bring that up?
