Befriending St. Joseph
I recall one time laying flowers before a statue of the Blessed Mother at my parish church. When someone suggested that St. Joseph deserved a bouquet too, the astute priest answered that St. Joseph was used to being ignored.
But that is no longer the case, thanks to the recent attention that has been focused on the husband of Mary and foster-father of Jesus. Deacon Greg Kandra taps into that curiosity about the often-overlooked saint with his new work Befriending St. Joseph: Finding Faith, Hope, and Courage in the Seven Sorrows Devotion.
With skill and savvy, Deacon Kandra introduces the reader to the compassion, anguish, and overwhelming trust that distinguish St. Joseph. By meditating on Joseph's sorrows, we can forge a stronger relationship with both the saint and our Heavenly Father.
Whether you have been devoted to St. Joseph for years or are just beginning to discover him, Befriending St. Joseph will be a helpful resource in growing your spiritual life.
