“To describe the life and glories of Joseph is to describe at the same time the life of Jesus and the glories of Mary; for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are so intimately united, that it is impossible to speak of one without treating the others.” (Page 1)
Today, most Catholics would be surprised to learn of the long history of scholarship and devotion regarding St. Joseph.
Every Catholic should understand the indispensable role that St. Joseph played in the life of the Blessed Virgin and in the life of the Son of God. The humble carpenter, loving husband, and holy father is always interceding on our behalf.
Do most Catholics really understand the life of Jesus’ foster father?
The Life and Glories of Saint Joseph will teach you how to know, love, and imitate the man and saint who knew Mary and Jesus better than any other.
If you are looking to deepen your knowledge of St. Joseph’s life, or for a simple reminder of his sincere love, this book will be your greatest help. Drawing upon Scripture, tradition, Church doctrine, the visions and revelations of saints, and the astoundingly insightful works of Don Antonio Vitali and P. Joséf Moreno, author Edward Thompson will give you an in-depth understanding of the life and importance of St. Joseph.
The Life and Glories of Saint Joseph is a carefully reasoned analysis of the entirety of that great saint's role in the history of Salvation and the life of the Church. This includes details about his spiritual life and noble lineage, how he was prefigured in the Old Testament, his relationship to Mary and Jesus, and why he has been named by Pope Pius IX "The Patron of the Universal Church" among other fascinating facts.
Devotion to St. Joseph has been a tradition from the earliest years of the Church and many have sought his help because of his sanctity and dignity. A sudden increase in devotions to St. Joseph in recent years shows that he is one of the most important Saints to intercede for us in the modern age. We have a wonderful friend in St. Joseph and should strive to know him and imitate his holiness!
