Description

From the author’s Introduction: "Though the role of St. Joseph is limited in the New Testament, his function is not insignificant in the plan of God. He is recalled briefly in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew; the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the visit of the king-astrologers, the flight into Egypt, the Presentation in the Temple, and life in Nazareth. I will focus on these excerpts of the New Testament in order to sketch the most accurate portrait possible of Joseph. I shall also speak of his veneration, which developed slowly throughout history and which has seen a renewal since the 20th century. I will conclude with some prayers that will awaken our contemplative glance on this great Saint, the Patron of the Church and of works, whom we celebrate with solemnity on March 19th."
