Guardian of Virgins – St. Joseph had the role of guarding the sacred virginity of the Blessed Mother. We ask St. Joseph to protect us also, so that we may love God with a clean spirit and a pure heart.
Pillar of Family Life – Joseph taught Jesus the Jewish faith and led the family in prayer. He was the protector and guide for the Holy Family and led them through the difficulties and joys of their family life. We can look to him to protect and guide our families.
