The Virtues of St. Joseph

Written on: March 30, 2021

The Spiritual Animation Committee plans to highlight the six virtues of St. Joseph over the next few months. The first virtue is:

Joseph, A beloved father

The greatness of Saint Joseph is that he was the spouse of Mary and the father of Jesus. In this way, he placed himself, in the words of St. John Chrysostom, “ at the service of the entire plan of salvation.” St. Paul VI pointed out that Joseph concretely expressed his fatherhood “by making his life a sacrificial service to the mystery of the Incarnation and its redemptive purpose. He employed his legal authority over the Holy Family to devote himself completely to them in his life and work. He turned his human vocation to domestic love into a superhuman oblation of himself, his heart and all his abilities, a love placed at the service of the Messiah who was growing to maturity in his home.”

Pope Francis, “Patris Corde”
