the role of St. Joseph is limited in the New Testament, his function
is not insignificant in the plan of God. He is recalled briefly in
the Gospels of Luke and Matthew; the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the
visit of the king-astrologers, the flight into Egypt, the
Presentation in the Temple, and life in Nazareth. I will focus on
these excerpts of the New Testament in order to sketch the most
accurate portrait possible of Joseph. I shall also speak of his
veneration, which developed slowly throughout history and which has
seen a renewal since the 20th century. I will conclude with some
prayers that will awaken our contemplative glance on this great
Saint, the Patron of the Church and of works, whom we celebrate with
solemnity on March 19th"- from the Author's
