Charles Soubre, “The Holy Family,” 19th century

Year of St. Joseph

When God became man, St. Joseph placed his life at the service of the Messiah, and later as protector of the Church. He is the Patron of Fathers, Model of Workmen, Pillar of Families — and the Terror of Demons.

Pope Francis has declared 2021 the “Year of St. Joseph.” To honor the saint, the Register offers articles on his role in salvation history — which is seen in miracles, apparitions and devotions, and every day in the quiet drama of Christian life.
