Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Pray for us.
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.
