The Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The second greatest saint, next to the Blessed Virgin Mary, is Saint Joseph. His great humility and closeness to Jesus Christ, allows him to be such a saint. Saint Joseph is the foster father of Our Lord and took great care of him. Divine Revelation tells us that Saint Joseph was pure, just, gentle, prudent, and completely obedient to the will of God. We should all strive to be as faithful as Saint Joseph. He was named the Patron of the Universal Church by Blessed Pope Pius IX. Blessed Pope John XXIII added his name to the Roman Canon of the Eucharistic Prayer. Please read my blog post from last year – Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church for further information on this great protector of the Holy Family.
