(died 1st century)
Patron of fathers, carpenters, those who fight for social justice & of those who battle with doubt
Everything we know about St. Joseph comes from scripture. He was a descendant of King David of Israel. He was a hard working carpenter. Joseph was a compassionate and caring man who was often visited by angels. Angles told him the truth about the child that Mary was carrying and Joseph married her without question. He was a loving and devoted foster father to Jesus. He is noted for his unquestioning willingness to always do whatever God asked of him.
