The Year of Saint Joseph
On December 8, 2020, Pope Francis announced a Year of St. Joseph in honor of the 150th anniversary of the saint's proclamation as patron of the Universal Church.
In celebration, we wanted to share some of our favorite St. Joseph icons, devotionals, and literature, including St. Joseph, Pray for Us, the new collection of prayers and meditations from Pope Francis. We've also included some prayer aids and fun ideas for celebrating the Year of Saint Joseph, or his feast day, coming up on March 19th!
Saint Joseph, Pray for Us
The newest title from Paulist Press is a perfect companion to a celebration of the Year of Saint Joseph! In St. Joseph, Pray for Us, Pope Francis captures the spiritual lessons of one of our most beloved saints. With these meditations from his Apostolic Letter, Patris Corde, Francis seeks "to increase our love for this great saint, to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal." Alongside many beautiful images of St. Joseph, readers can prayerfully reflect on these meditations and consider how to apply them in their daily lives.
