St. Joseph, Spouse of Mary

            St. Joseph, the pure spouse of the Blessed Mary and foster-father of our Blessed Lord, was descended from the royal house of David. He is the “just man” of the New Testament, the lowly village carpenter of Nazareth, who among all men of the world was one chosen by God to be the husband and protector of the Mother of Jesus Christ, God incarnate. To his faithful, loving care was entrusted the childhood and youth of the Redeemer of the world.
             St. Joseph is adorned with natural and supernatural virtues. In purity of heart, in chastity of life, in humility, patience, fortitude, gentleness, and manliness of character, he reveals to us the perfect type and model of the true Christian.

Memorare to St. Joseph

        Remember, O most chaste Spouse of the Mary, St. Joseph my beloved patron, that never was it known that anyone who implored your help and sought your intercession was left unassisted. Full of confidence in your power, I fly unto you, and beg your protection. Despise not, O Foster-Father of the Redeemer, my humble supplication, but in your bounty, hear and answer me.
