To accomplish his great redemptive plan of love for humanity, God chose Mary, wholly pure, to be Jesus’ mother. And he chose Joseph, a just man, to be the guardian of Mary and Jesus.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis proclaimed a special “Year of Saint Joseph”. It began on December 8, 2020 and will last till December 8, 2021.
With this delightful, inspiring and beautifully illustrated book, children will learn about and grow closer to Saint Joseph. They will also learn to ask for the powerful intercession and protection of this discreet and humble man, who always put Jesus and Mary first while placing himself at their service.
