Please, can anybody paraphrase the underlined sentence? It is an odd complex sentence, I think.

(1350.5) 122:7.3 Joseph virtually forbade Mary to accompany him, but it was of no avail; when the food was packed for the trip of three or four days, she prepared double rations and made ready for the journey. But before they actually set forth, Joseph was reconciled to Mary’s going along, and they cheerfully departed from Nazareth at the break of day.

Thank you!

Hi Angel, glad to see your post! I read the underlined passage as:

When they were getting the supplies ready for the 3 or 4 day long trip, despite Joseph having already basically forbidden her from traveling with him, Mary packed her stuff anyway. She also made sure they had twice as much food as originally planned so that she too had something to eat during the journey.

Gotta admire her strength and tenacity. As well as Joseph's love for her. As soon as he recognized she had made up her mind, he folded. Wise move!! :)
