The sweet pose of Saint Joseph embracing the Christ Child and the elegant detail and gilt finish of this holy water font makes it practically a shrine!
Saint Joseph holds the lily in his hand as a sign of his perpetual purity, which blossomed when he was selected to be the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We remember the powerful intercession of this favorite Catholic saint as the ideal role model for fathers, for workers, especially carpenters, and as the patron saint of the dying. Veneration of Saint Joseph is sure to bring blessings to any home and family! A Father’s Day and Christmas favorite!
ST JOSEPH PRAYER
O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O Saint Joseph, please obtain from thy foster son Our lord Jesus Christ all spiritual blessings, so that having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer thee my thanksgiving and homage. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee and Jesus asleep in thy arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name, and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us!
Font measures 1.75 x 2.6 x 7.75 inches; resin/stone

This lovely holy water font arrived just a couple of days before we enthroned the Sacred Heart of Jesus as Supreme King of our home! Saint Joseph is included in this enthronement and now we have a reminder of our baptisms with the holy water and along with the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus we have Saint Joseph!
