I’m still learning about St. Joseph

+JMJ+ I’ve been exploring and studying the faith for many years, since those early days in 1994 until now, 28 years later. (I’ve been Catholic for 26 years but began exploring the Church a couple of years before I was received.) And still I learn something new all the time. Yesterday I discovered a devotion I’d never heard of before. 

How did I not know this? His feast day is coming up soon (March 19) and the novena began last week. But the Seven Sundays Devotion to St. Joseph–I had no idea. I needed to know about this months ago so I could’ve begun the devotion on time. Sigh. Next year I plan to do this one and the novena. And maybe do some of these during the year, too.

In the Notes and Links section below I’ve listed some interesing things I found about this devotion and about St. Joseph in general. I especially like the St Joseph in Art link. 

I’ve learned way more about our beautiful tradition of sacred art by working on the Rosary Project and searching for images for the Rosary threads on Twitter (see the Rosary Project Live Archives) and the galleries here on the blog (see the Mysteries of the Rosary and choose a Mystery to see a gallery. I posted these here along long after the live Twitter Rosary threads began in 2018.) 

I have some posts in mind about the art I’ve collected, probably will be Monday posts while Thursdays will still be devoted to whatever series is going on at the time. Right now it’s the Quest for Holiness, part of the Catholic Book of the Month series.

(An aside: It occurred to me just now that as I still haven’t dug out all of my books and put them in the bookcases yet, I still haven’t found my copy of a Manual of Devotion to St. Joseph, TAN books. Argh. Add another book to the list of things I still have to find. I think I only paid $1 for a used copy, really don’t want to buy a new one. Doh! Never mind, forgot I have the ebook, too. Whew!)

Thanks for visiting the blog and reading. I pray that you and I will stay holy and virtuous this Lent, and may we become who the Lord intends us to be: SAINTS. God bless you and may His Peace be always with you. +JMJ+ 

Join me on Fridays for the Rosary Project Live on Twitter at 8pm ET, 7pm CT, to cultivate a culture of Light, Life, Love, Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, for the conversion of sinners, and for the salvation of souls. There’s also a Rosary on the blog you can use anytime.

    1. Just realized I never replied to your comment! Please forgive me! St. Joseph is a wonderful saint and I still haven’t read this book. My sister sent me a gift card and I think I’ll use part of it to get this one and read it soon. Thanks for reading and comment, I do appreciate it!
