19th March… Feast of St Joseph

Click here to read the Catholic Encyclopaedia account of the life of St Joseph.

We’re  launching this thread on St Joseph ahead of the Feast Day, because, in preparation for our usual closure during Holy Week, we’ve closed all the discussion threads early. The atmosphere on the blog has not been good recently, and so we need time to recollect ourselves as the end of Lent approaches, and we enter into the events of Holy Week.  

St Joseph, advocate of the dying and the sinner, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

This thread is a purely devotional and fun thread.  As with all Feast Day threads, we may post favourite prayers, hymns litanies, etc. And a few good clean fun jokes will also be welcome.  This is not the place for controversy – it is a Feast Day thread to learn more about the saint of the day and to share favourite prayers and jokes.  Enjoy!
