Happy St. Joseph’s Day

Today’s saint is pretty busy. I’ve always had a sort of anti-devotion to “popular” saints. I try to seek out more obscure saints to pray to, to give the “popular” ones a break. In “recent” years, however, I’ve built a pretty strong devotion to St. Joseph.

So, happy feast day to:
My son.
My Dad.
My father-in-law (his confirmation saint).
My parish.
My Holy Father in Rome.
The Universal Church, and Her Latin Rite in particular.
The Order of Discalced Carmelites.
All fathers.
All workers, particularly builders.
All homes and families.
My brother. (O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fountain of mercy in us, I trust in You!)
