As the symbolic figure of fatherhood and paternal care, St. Joseph is an important saint. He was the head of the Holy Family and responsible for the immediate care of Mary and Jesus. He sought a sanctuary for Mary on the eve of The Nativity and he stayed with his family all the days of his life. He respected the Virginity of Our Lady and he cared for Jesus, laboring tirelessly to serve God and his family.
We are called to follow his example. By emulating Joseph, we demonstrate our respect for his sacrifices and his work. We grow in holiness.
St. Joseph is worth of remembrance and his medal will serve as a permanent reminder that loving fidelity to family and to duty is the way for all Catholic men to be.
Let us be like Saint Joseph!
