About our patron St. Joseph

As Guardian of the Holy Family and also Guardian of the Church Universal, for centuries St. Joseph has been one of the most beloved saints of the Church. In this icon, the saint holds a flowering staff which was the miraculous testimony that signalled God's choice of St. Joseph as the betrothed of the Blessed Virgin. Searching for a righteous man with whom they could entrust the youthful Virgin Mary in marriage, the priests of the Temple called all the men of the tribe of Judah to bring their staves into the Holy of Holies. The staff of the righteous man Joseph miraculously budded. And so he was chosen to become the spouse of the Blessed Virgin. St. Luke's Gospel describes in detail St. Joseph's important role in the eternal drama of Christ's birth, the flight into Egypt and the finding in the Temple. The apocryphal "History of Joseph the Carpenter" records that at his holy death St. Joseph was assisted by Christ and the Blessed Virgin.
