The Righteous and Patron St. Joseph: Monday, March 20th, 2017 (St. Joseph)

Listen to the homily here.


“Joseph…he was a righteous man…”
·      “…yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.”
·      His message from the angel
·      “When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.”
No written for his voice in the Bible
·      He protected Mary and Jesus
·      He taught his “adopted son” in his job
·      At some point he died
Patron of the Universal Church, unborn children, fathers, workers, travelers, immigrants, and a happy death
