  • St. Joseph and Manhood

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 03-19-17 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    St. Joseph and Manhood Msgr. Charles Pope • March 19, 2017 • I remember once being amused to hear that a 19th century Franciscan theologian (whose name I cannot recall) wrote a six-volume set called “The Life of St. Joseph.” How could one possibly get enough material to fill six volumes? We know so little about Joseph from Scripture. He seems to have been the strong, silent type. Not a word of his is recorded, but his actions have much to say, especially to men.On this feast of St. Joseph, we do well to ponder him as a model...

    For centuries Christians have turned to St. Joseph as a powerful patron and faithful guardian, father and friend. Invoked as the Glory of home life, Patron of the Dying and Terror of Demons, Christians call upon St. Joseph for healing and conversion, help with their children, a new job or home, and for all their needs of body and soul.Honored as the Patron of the Universal Church, St. Joseph’s paternal protection of the Lord Jesus continues even from heaven, as he watches over Christ’s Mystical Body on earth. The foster-father of the Son of God is also a father to those who have...

    St. Joseph Teaches Us How to Live Out AdventFr. Ed Broom, OMV Saint Joseph can help us to live a most fruitful Advent, and for many reasons. Let us quietly meditate upon five extraordinary virtues of this greatest of all saints so that we can live a most fervent Advent season and allow Jesus to be born in the depths of our hearts this Christmas!1. Silence. Not once in the Bible do we hear a word from the great Saint Joseph. This silence of Saint Joseph is very eloquent. It teaches us a fundamental attitude to enter into deep prayer:...

    St. Louis Review ^ | July 7, 2016 | Fr. John Mayo
    The life of St. Joseph is largely veiled to us by history. While there are some writings from the early centuries of the Church about St. Joseph, they are part of the apocryphal literature. Writings in this category are largely viewed with suspicion, as they were written more to convey hidden, secret knowledge that was believed to be needed to attain salvation, rather than to give an account of events that took place. We also have the writings of mystics such as Anne Catherine Emmerich and the Venerable Mother Mary of Jesus of Agreda, which pass along vivid details of...

    What We Can Learn About Suffering in the Story of Joseph the Patriarch Msgr. Charles Pope January 12, 2016 One of the greatest (but most painful) of mysteries is that of suffering and evil in the world. I was meditating with my Sunday school parents this past weekend on the Old Testament patriarch Joseph. His story is rich with lessons about family struggles, envy, jealousy, pride, mercy, and forgiveness. But it also has a lot to say about suffering and the way that God can use it to bring blessings.While there are many layers to Joseph's story, both personal...

    Seton Magazine ^ | 03.18.15 | John Clark
    Because this column is devoted to promoting Catholic fatherhood, this is a special feast day: the Feast of Saint Joseph. The following is an updated version of a column that John wrote a few years ago. Men in history are often remembered for things like winning a battle, governing a country, composing a symphony, writing a masterpiece, or inventing a life-changing device. Today, the Church honors a man who did none of these. Even in his own time, in the eyes of much of the world, this small-town carpenter was insignificant. But his greatness did not lie in his...

    In his love for Mary and Jesus, St. Josephs faithfulness and purity are an example for all Christian fathersby Father Frederick J. Miller (Tyrolese Art Glass Co., Austria, 1899 / Courtesy Saint Joseph's University Collection, Philadelphia) In his 1989 apostolic letter, Guardian of the Redeemer, Blessed John Paul II held up St. Joseph as a model of the Christian life for all believers. He wrote, St. Josephs example transcends all individual states of life and serves as a model for the entire Christian community, whatever the condition and duties of each of its members may be (30). Precisely because...

    His obedience of faith was manifested, as the Gospel tells us, after an angel of God revealed to him that it was through the Holy Spirit that the child had been conceived in Mary. When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took his wife into his home without hesitation or objection. (Matthew 1:20) When Herod sought to kill the infant Jesus, Saint Joseph obediently took him and the Blessed Mother to safety. (Matthew 2:13-14) As Pope Saint John II pointed out in Redemptoris Custos, already at the beginning of redemption, after Mary,...

    The St. Mary and St. Joseph Family Memorial Foundation has purchased the Twin Spires in Downtown St. Joseph with plans to create a national pro-life shrine. When it opens this spring, the church will become the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the first national pro-life shrine in the country. It will serve as a location for prayer to end abortion, and for atonement for the babies and the conversion of their parents, the nonprofit said. It was kind of miraculous. We were going to build a shrine, said Richard Mahoney, president of the foundation. I got a call from a...

    Former Gov. Joe Kernan says a signature on a petition to place Barack Obama's name on Indiana's 2008 primary ballot isn't his, putting him among dozens of dubious signatures found in a newspaper's investigation. Kernan, a Democrat who campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primary, told the South Bend Tribune that he didn't sign the Obama document. "No, not at all," the former South Bend mayor said when asked whether the signature next to his name on the Obama petition looked like his own. "Nor does the printing look like mine." The Tribune reported Wednesday that it has talked...

    "I've seen much hypocrisy from Catholic elected officials during this process, but Nancy Pelosi's invoking of St. Joseph, the patron of families, to assist in the passage of the health care bill is utter sacrilege," said Dr. Kevin Roberts, executive director of Catholic Families for America. "Does the speaker not know that St. Joseph is the patron of families? How far does her apostasy go?" questioned Dr. Kevin Roberts, executive director of the group. Roberts mentioned that so many Catholic groups had been praying a Novena to St. Joseph, which is a nine-day prayer for his intercession on behalf of...
