Featured Saint 7/1

St Joseph the Carpenter

Claim to fame: Invited to be the earthly father of Jesus and look after His mother Mary. His silent faith is an inspiration to many today and in many churches he is considered the patron saint for fathers.

Quote: “St. Joseph did not do extraordinary things, but rather by the constant practice of ordinary and common virtues, he attained that sanctity which elevates him above all the other saints.” (St Joseph Marello)

Fun fact: St Joseph never uttered a word in Scripture. He simply believed, and he trusted. He wasn’t afraid to change. And he did profound things.
