I grew up in a Catholic household and went to Catholic School, in fact St. Joseph Catholic school in Wisconsin. My understanding of St. Joseph the person at that time was limited to his being the husband of Mary and the foster-father of Jesus.
During the past few weeks I have learned more about this saint than anytime during my Catholic life and, because of this consecration journey, I have grown in my relationship not only with St. Joseph, but with the Holy Family as well.
I am blessed and honored to be able to call him my spiritual father and to begin to know him in such an intimate way.
With God, timing is everything and it is more than fortuitous that during this time of great uncertainty and crisis in our world, this study of St. Joseph is offered. It is a miraculous event and it has forever changed my spiritual life.
