In honor of the celebration of the Feast of St. Joseph, here is a great article that talks about St. Joseph: The Silent Figure.
In the article, Fr. William Saunders quotes Pope John Paul II saying, ‘Pope John Paul II in Redemptoris Custos (1989) exhorted the faithful to look to St. Joseph in our troubled age: “This patronage must be invoked, and it is always necessary for the Church, not only to defend it against dangers ceaselessly cropping up, but also and above all to support it in those fearful efforts at evangelizing the world, and spreading the new evangelization among nations where the Christian religion and life were formerly the most flourishing, but are now put to a difficult test…. May St. Joseph become for all a singular master in the service of the saving mission of Christ that is incumbent on each and every one of us in the Church: To spouses, to parents, to those who live by the work of their hands or by any other work, to persons called to the contemplative life as well as to those called to the apostolate.”‘ ”
St. Joseph, please place our Lenten intentions at the feet of Jesus…and pray for us!
