PASTOR'S NOTE ON THE SEVEN JOYS OF SAINT JOSEPH

Saint Joseph the just man was also a man of deep and abiding joy. Christian piety, has, for centuries, counted his joys. And while there are many variations on the joys of Saint Joseph, we offer seven here that are particularly appropriate to ponder during Advent and Christmastide. May we learn from the Guardian of the Redeemer that joy can flower in every circumstance, if we have firm faith in the Lord who is eternally true to His name: EMMANUEL-GOD-WITH-US!
