Thank you, St. Joseph!

Thank you, St. Joseph!

Provider and protector. Honorable and loyal. Strong yet silent. Teacher, worker, faithful leader and guide.

Buona Festa Di San Giuseppe, everyone!!

Today, we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, head of the Holy Family of Nazareth. In the midst of our Lenten journey, the Church allows veneration of and celebration surrounding the foster Father of Jesus, to the point of suspending the normal Friday obligation of abstinence from meat.

Perhaps you can say a special prayer to St. Joseph today, celebrate his Feast Italian-style (go to “Customs” header), read a bit more about his life, or do a fun activity with St. Joseph as your inspiration.

Blessings upon you this day! May St. Joseph be venerated in your home.

Thank you, St. Joseph, for taking Mary, the Immaculate Conception, into your home.
