Chosen by God as the head of the Holy Family, Saint Joseph humbly took on the great responsibility of providing and caring for Jesus and Mary. Throughout his life he had complete trust and confidence in God, and perfect abandonment to His providence. Countless miracles and graces have been given through the power and intercession of this lowly carpenter.
The lovely image on the cover, depicts Saint Joseph as the chaste spouse and guardian of the Virgin Mary, the foster-father of Jesus Christ, and protector of the Universal Church, symbolized by Saint Peter’s Basilica which the angel holds. The banner Ite ad Joseph encourages the faithful to “Go to Joseph” in all their necessities.

When I converted to the Catholic Faith, I chose St. Joseph as my patron saint at my baptism, my confirmation and when I was ordained a permanent Deacon. The Holy Year dedicated to St. Joseph was truly an honor for Good St. Joseph.
