“St Joseph was of the family of David. Indeed was he a true son of that kingly house, noble in his descent, yet more noble in his mind. A true son of David. The Lord found in him a man after his own heart (Acts 13:22). It was given to St. Joseph not simply to see and hear Him whom many kings and prophets had desired to see and hear, (Matt 13:17) but as well to carry , lead, embrace, kiss, nurture and protect Him.” Henri Rondet, S.J.
