Knock, Knock

Another window from the Oratory of St. Joseph at Maryknoll which shows Mary astride the donkey with Joseph, a very young man, seeking lodging (Lk. 2:7) for himself and his wife that first Christmas. Note the "Star of Bethlehem" in the upper center panel and the two crosses on the upper and lower right hand panels. Can you see the utter frustration on the face of Joseph as he tries to provide for his young family?
