Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Pray for us.
Luke 2:41-51

 

We must not overlook the prominent place that St. Joseph played in the life of Jesus. Joseph provided for his material needs when he was an infant; he trained Jesus in the traditions of their ancestors, he taught Jesus how to work with his hands; St. Joseph did not stand in the way of his son’s spiritual calling. We are reminded on this feast that parents hold the destiny of their children in their hands.
