ST JOSEPH’S STAFF

Joseph 25

When the time came for Mary to be betrothed, there is a legend that those seeking her hand put their staffs at the altar in the temple. It is said after a time of prayer and fasting that the staff of Joseph of Nazareth was found to be in bloom with lilies. Thus St Joseph was chosen to be the spouse of the most holy virgin Mary.
