    St.Joseph is the patron saint of our family. He is among the most popular, most loved saints(St. Anthony of Padua is the other). Whenever I hear of humility, the only picture come to my mind is of St.Joseph.

    Thanks Edvard

    Indeed this site has enriched me very much. Since St. Joseph is my favorite saint whom I take my interests, feelings, failures, successes to. And ask him to intercede for me. Stay blessed always.

    Great site. Good Information. I pray to St. Joseph for all of my sons, especially for the eldest sons who are divorced with no children, that they receive God's grace through St Joseph so that they may truly be converted. And for His Blessings for me so that I may be a good Father to them just like St. Joseph was to Jesus.
