Like every other human family, the Holy Family had to confront real and concrete challenges.
Yet, “in every situation, Joseph declared his own ‘fiat’” (PC 3). His “yes” to the Lord meant that regardless of the hardship and personal sacrifice to himself, he consistently chose to put the needs of Mary and Jesus before his own.
Joseph’s devotion helps reveal to us our own call to show special care for the lives of those whom God has entrusted to us.

St. Joseph, defender of life, pray for us!
