Day by Day Through Lent: Day Thirty
Feast of Saint Joseph
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin
This feast truly does give us a break of sorts from the routine of Lent. In a way, though, Saint Joseph is a perfect "Lenten saint", as he is honored above all for his faithful, humble obedience to the Lord. This prayer of Saint Joseph dates back to the first century after Jesus! It's a good reflection for this celebration today. Click on the image of Joseph and Mary above to see the prayer.
Don't forget our Communal Penance Service tonight at 7:00 in the church. Six or seven priests from the area will be for the sacrament of reconciliation. Please join us!
