St. Joseph: Not Your Average Joe!
One can not speak about St. Joseph without also incorporating his beloved wife Mary. The chaste young spouses have a singular mission to bear Christ to the entire world. It is the same mission that we all have but they model it with great perfection. While Joseph is silent throughout sacred scripture, his actions speak volumes. His virtues of chastity, patience, and long-suffering win him a litany of wonderful and well-deserved titles.
Let your imagination sore as you consider this dearly loved Saint, a man for all times and all seasons and a spiritual father for all.
St. Joseph, pray for us!
