Celebrating the Year of St. Joseph
To mark the occasion of the the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from now until December 8, 2021.
"In his relationship to Jesus, Joseph was the earthly shadow of the heavenly Father: he watched over him and protected him, never leaving him to go his own way. . . Fathers are not born, but made. A man does not become a father simply by bringing a child into the world, but by taking up the responsibility to care for that child. Whenever a man accepts responsibility for the life of another, in some way he becomes a father to that person." (PC7)
~ Pope Francis, Patris Corde (Apostolic Letter on the 150th Anniversary
of the Proclamation of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church)
