The Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

We celebrate two feast days for Joseph: March 19 for Joseph the Husband of Mary and May 1 for Joseph the Worker.

There is much we wish we could know about Joseph -- where and when he was born, how he spent his days, when and how he died. But Scripture has left us with the most important knowledge: who he was -- "a righteous man" (Matthew 1:18).


  1. Julie, check out this great page about a former-atheist-turned-Catholic's devotion to St. Joseph:


    St. Joseph, pray for us all!

  2. How curious that the Day of St. Joseph the Worker has become, throughout the world and sanctioned by governments, the day of the looter, the indolent, the envious, the resentful.
