“Saint Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten families.” – Pope St. John Paul II
Joseph, chaste husband of Mary is given the highest compliment in the Bible – he was a just man.
“By saying Joseph was just, the Bible means that he was one who was completely open to all that God wanted to do for him. He became holy by opening himself totally to God.” – Catholic Online
Let us thank God for St. Joseph, who loved God, was obedient to his calling as husband of Mary and protector of Jesus. Ask St. Joseph to pray for you, for your family, for the men you know, that he may pray for us to also be open to God’s plan for us.
The Church celebrates his feast day on March 19.
