Pope Francis has declared 2021 the Year of St. Joseph!
According to the Pope, "Each of us can discover in Joseph — the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence — an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble."
This particular statue is a miniature of one Pope Francis has in his own bedroom. "Even when he is asleep, St. Joseph is taking care of the Church!" says the Pope, "So when I have a problem, a difficulty, I write a little note and I put it underneath St. Joseph, so that he can dream about it! In other words I tell him: pray for this problem!"
