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).

I love St. Joseph. He was the quiet man of action. Those are my kind of guys.

I've been working through Donald Calloway's book Consecration to St. Joseph so now I have even more of a connection.
