New Apostolic Letter of Pope Francis on St Joseph

Published to mark the 150th anniversary of the Proclamation of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis offers a rich and personal reflection on the fatherhood of St Joseph. In his pastoral and readable style, he writes about St Joseph as

•          A beloved father

•          A tender and loving father

•          An obedient father

•          An accepting father

•          A creatively courageous father

•          A working father

•          A father in the shadows

Announcing a year dedicated to St Joseph, the Holy Father presents St Joseph as an example of the type of father so sorely needed in the world and in the Church today. In St Joseph we find a sure intercessor in the most difficult moments and impossible situations.
