St. Joseph

Joseph was, according to the canonical Christian Gospel accounts and tradition, the husband of Mary and the father of Jesus of Nazareth, although as they also assert Joseph did not physically beget Jesus, but Mary had conceived him through divine means.

The genealogy in Matthew shows that Joseph’s own father was called Jacob; according the genealogy in Luke Joseph was a son of Heli.  From the canonical Gospel accounts little else is known about Joseph  himself, except that he was a skilled craftsman (often held to have been a carpenter) and during Jesus’ childhood lived at times in Nazareth in Galilee, Bethlehem in Judea, and in exile in Egypt.

In particular, the canonical Gospel accounts contain no information about Joseph’s death.  However, because they mention his presence only at events during Jesus’ childhood but not during his public ministry and passion, moreover, when hanging on the cross Jesus made provision for the care of his mother after his own imminent death, the possibility cannot be ruled out that she was a widow by then and that Joseph had died some time during the two decades between Jesus’ childhood and the commencement of his public ministry, an interval about which the canonical Gospel accounts are altogether silent.  In the Roman Catholic and other traditions, Joseph is the patron saint of workers and has several feast days.  He was also declared to be the patron saint and protector of the universal Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX in 1870, and is the patron of several countries and regions.

JER 17:5-8
Thought of the day
    February 17th, 2019 JER 17:5-8 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 78 Reading Thus says the LORD: Cursed is the one who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the LORD. He is like a barren bush in the desert that enjoys no change of season, but stands in a lava waste, a salt and empty earth. Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD. He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes; its leaves stay green; in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit. Responsorial Psalm PS 1:1-2, 3, 4 AND 6 R. (40:5a) Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Blessed the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked, nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of the insolent, but delights in the law of the LORD and meditates on his law day and night. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. He is like a tree planted near running water, that yields its fruit in due season, and whose leaves never fade. Whatever he does, prospers. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Not so the wicked, not so; they are like chaff which the wind drives away. For the LORD watches over the way of the just, but the way of the wicked vanishes. R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Reading 2 1 COR 15:12, 16-20 Brothers and sisters: If Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins. Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiable people of all. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Alleluia LK 6:23AB R. Alleluia, alleluia. Rejoice and be glad; your reward will be great in heaven. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel LK 6:17, 20-26 Jesus came down with the twelve and stood on a stretch of level ground with a great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon. And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way. But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”
