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.

Saint Joseph and His World

+JMJ+ I’ve been posting about our Catholic Book of the Month for the last few Monday posts. But it’s also supposed to be the Year of St. Joseph (or is it?), and I wanted to share some videos I found, a set of interviews by Kris McGregor of of Discerning Hearts with Mike Aquilina, author of St. Joseph and His World. Such good stuff! I’ve enjoyed listening to and reading Aquilina for many years, ever since I first saw him in a series on EWTN with Scott Hahn.

Solemnity of St Joseph, March 19

Novena to St. Joseph begins

+JMJ+ I’ve found two different dates for when the Novena to St. Joseph begins. Some say March 11, some say March 10. The USCCB says March 10. You can use that link to use their materials for the novena. I’ve posted a longish version on the blog. I hope you find it useful. God bless you! +JMJ+

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you! Save souls!

Nancy Pelosi is an ardent practicing Catholic like I am a Jedi Knight

Updated Dec 6, 2019: Fixed broken links.

If you haven’t heard about Nancy Pelosi asking St. Joseph to intercede to get this outrageous legislation passed, I invite you to watch the video below. Nancy Pelosi is a Catholic like I’m a Jedi Knight. No, I take that back. I’m light-years closer to being a Jedi Knight than she is to being anything like an “ardent practicing Catholic.” Nancy, give it a rest, give me a break, and give a public apology to St. Joseph, Protector and Guardian of the Holy Family, the Patron of the Universal Church, Terror of Demons and Patron of Workers, for daring to mention him as the patron of workers, adding that this bill would benefit the workers of this country (or anyone else!), as if this would convince the foster-father of Jesus Christ to intercede with the Lord on behalf of her unspeakable, thoroughly deplorable and despicable atrociously misleading and misnamed “health care reform” abomination and atrocity.
