Our Patron Saint
Patron of: The Catholic Church, unborn children, fathers, workers, against doubt and hesitation, and of a happy death, etc.
Saint Joseph, a man with a common touch. Quiet, giving, on the verge of mystery. He was left with dreams and the
work of his hands. Displaced, a common worker, no name but carpenter this Joseph. Despite his humble work and means, Joseph
came from a royal lineage, descended from David, the greatest king of Israel. We know he was a compassionate, caring man. The
just man was simply, joyfully, wholeheartedly obedient to God - in marrying Mary, in naming Jesus, in shepherding the precious
pair to Egypt, in bringing them to Nazareth, in the undetermined number of years of quiet faith and courage. He was chosen by
the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph's
wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: 'Good and faithful servant, enter
into the joy of your Lord".
