Here’s one of those deep urgent questions in moral theology that members of the One True Church® tussle over.

I decided to hold a séance to see if I could get some expert advice. St. Alphonsus de Liguori told me that Mary and Joseph were allowed to kiss on condition that Mary wear a veil to prevent their lips from coming into direct contact.
But Francisco Suárez demurred, assuring me that Mary and Joseph were only allowed to rub noses. I was about to ask the Blessed Cardinal Newman when my medium suffered a fit of hiccups and had to sever the uplink.
When communications are restored, I also plan to ask if Mary and Joseph were allowed to hold hands–with or without gloves.
