When Pope Francis proclaimed a Year of St Joseph in 2020, a renewal of devotion began to this most beloved foster father of Jesus. Now, over two years since that year was initiated, many Catholics are ardently devoted to St Joseph, seeking his powerful intercession.
With the month of March dedicated to St Joseph, and with his feast offering a brief reprieve from Lent on Monday, we want to encourage you once again to “go to St Joseph”. Our books will help you to pray to St Joseph with a vast selection of prayers, they will aid you in learning more about the powerful protector of the Church, and most importantly they will deepen your devotion to him.
“Knowing by experience St Joseph’s astonishing influence with God, I would wish to persuade everyone to honour him with particular devotion. I have always seen those who honoured him in a special manner make progress in virtue, for this heavenly protector favours in a striking manner the spiritual advancement of souls who commend themselves to him.” (St Teresa of Avila)
