Guardian of the Church

05-02-2021Year of St. Joseph

Venerable Pope Pius XII wrote “If Joseph was so engaged, heart and soul, in protecting and providing for that little family at Nazareth, don’t you think that now in Heaven he is the same loving father and guardian of the whole Church, of all its members, as he was of its Head on earth?”

To think about: Joseph protected and cared for Jesus Christ. We are part of the body of Christ, so surely St. Joseph cares for us just as he cared for Jesus. Include Joseph in your daily prayers this week, and talk to him as you would a father.
