Today we celebrate a great Saint, a model man, husband, and protector of families: Saint Joseph. We know very little about this Saint who, along with Mary through her generous Yes, welcomed, cared for and formed our Lord Jesus in infancy and childhood. In this gallery we want to show you some details of this great Saint who, even in his silence, heroically models manhood for humanity.

Just as the gift of the Holy Family was entrusted to Saint Joseph, so the gift of the family and its place in God’s plan is entrusted to us so we can carry it forward. To each one of you and us because I too am the son of a family.Pope Francis
