Pope Francis proclaimed 2021, the year dedicated to the foster father of Jesus. In a December 8, 2020 apostolic letter, "Patris Corde", the pope said Christians can discover in St. Joseph, who often goes unnoticed, "an
intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble." "St. Joseph reminds us that those who appear hidden or in the shadows can play an incomparable role in the history of salvation." St. Joseph's unconditional acceptance of Mary and his decision to protect her "good name, her dignity and her life" also serves as an example for men today, the pope added.
"Today, in our world where psychological, verbal and physical violence toward women is so evident, Joseph appears as a figure of a respectful and sensitive man," he wrote. Pope Francis also highlighted, St. Joseph the special patron of all those forced to leave their native lands because of war, hatred, persecution and poverty."
