JOSEPH, SON OF DAVID

 

Picture of St. Joseph

 

St. Bernard said of St. Joseph,  In the old testament figure, King David, Joseph is seen as truly the “son of David”, a son, not unworthy of his father.  He is the son of David in all the strength of that term, not by the flesh but by his faith and holiness and loving reverence, for God looked upon him as another David, well able to guard the (sacred) secrets.”
