This is one of my favorite pictures of the Holy Family and I think it is very appropriate for today's feast, Joseph the Worker. How interesting that on the first day of May, a month where we honor Mary, we give a nod to St. Joseph. And that's as it should be. Joseph, blessed spouse and beloved foster father made it easier for Mary to fulfill her role as mother and homemaker. His work as a carpenter sustained the family.
What a wonderful feast in the liturgical year and a good day to remember the husbands and fathers in our own little domestic churches.
