(He who commands, must obey.)
“St. Joseph of Nazareth, chaste husband of Mary, and foster father of our Lord Jesus.”
For a moment there I thought it said that St. Joseph was a Tadjik. Wow! The Holy Family has a Central Asian connection?
Anyway, when you describe him as Mary’s chaste husband, you have kicked over a hornets’ nest. The Biblethumpers will soon be posting, “Jesus had brothers and sisters!!” while dropping unsubtle hints about Mariolatry.

("Deport all Muslims. Nuke Mecca now. Death to Islam means freedom for all mankind.")
would the name “Melchizedek” be related?

St. Joseph was comprised into the highest order of creation, that of the hypostatic union
I think, Apostolic order is one thing, pertaining to degrees of sanctity, but hypostatic union means consubstantiality and so is quite another, and is properly reserved to the Holy Trinity only.
I would like to see if Suarez's "appertaining to the order of the Hypostatic Union" is really the same as St. Joseph -- or Blessed Mary -- being "comprised" into it. The seond quote, from Giovanni di Cartagena supports the sense of degrees of sanctity better than the sense of true hypostatic union.
