Today is the feast day of Saint Joseph the foster father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is a wonderful role model for all husbands and fathers. Today we honour him for his unconditional love to Mary and Jesus, for all that he has done for them to protect and care for them.
"Holy God, you chose Saint Joseph to care for Mary and Jesus because his holiness and love for You was great, his compassion for others was outstanding, and his desire to protect and provide for his family was honorable. I ask Saint Joseph to intercede for all the men in my family. May they become fully the husbands and fathers You have called them to be in family leadership. Help them to rely on the Holy Spirit for strength, wisdom, and guidance, just as Saint Joseph did. Teach them the glory of serving one's family with humility and protect them from the influences of the world. Saint Joseph, pray for us. Amen."
