In Praise Of St. Joseph

Feast Of St. Joseph The Worker 2016

Today’s sermon refers to the Epistle of St. James from the Fifth Sunday after Easter in order to caution us not to be overbearing in our relations with others, especially in matters pertaining to the Faith.   With reference to the prayers of the Mass for St. Joseph the Worker, we learn of the great virtues of the man chosen by God to be the foster-father of Jesus.  Although not His biological father, Joseph was a true father to Jesus in every sense of the word and a model for all fathers.  Because of his great virtues, he is called Patron of the Universal Church and even today works for our salvation.  The admonition: “Ite Ad Joseph” is a good one for us to follow, especially in these times.
