What do we know about the life of St Joseph and how can he inspire us to become closer to Our Lord? St Bernard of Clairvaux reminds us of the honour bestowed upon this great saint:
“St Joseph was chosen among all men, to be the protector and guardian of the Virgin Mother of God; the defender and foster-father of the InfantGod, and the only co-operator upon earth, the one confidant of the secret of God in the work of the redemption of mankind.”
