Feast Of St. Joseph 2017
St. Joseph was a holy man who fulfilled the law with devotion and heart-felt piety. He was chosen to be the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and to be the foster-father of the Son of God. In that capacity he was the image of God the Father. As the redemption depended on Our Lady’s “Fiat” at the Annunciaton so it was protected by her marriage to St. Joseph and his protection of her and the Holy Infant.
