The Epiphany of the Lord
News and Notes:
Marking the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being declared Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis proclaimed a yearlong celebration dedicated to the foster father of Jesus. There is much we can learn from this quiet figure of the Holy Family. As St. Peter Julian Eymard wrote, “St. Joseph worshiped Jesus as no saint before had done. From his deep, calm soul he poured out a very ocean of love - tenderest love, humblest love… No angel might love Jesus as Joseph loved Him, as Joseph was bound to love Him. Aside from the Blessed Virgin, Saint Joseph was the first and most perfect adorer of Our Lord."
Many thanks to all who contributed in any way to our celebration of Christmas and blessings for good health, much happiness and growth in holiness to all of you in 2021!
