On this day
The feast of Saint Joseph. “Saint Joseph really is a father and lord. He protects those who revere him and accompanies them on their journey through this life — just as he protected and accompanied Jesus when he was growing up. As you get to know him, you discover that the holy patriarch is also a master of the interior life — for he teaches us to know Jesus and share our life with him, and to realize that we are part of God’s family. Saint Joseph can teach us these lessons, because he is an ordinary man, a family man, a worker who earned his living by manual labour,” said Saint Josemaría in a homily on this date.
