ST JOSEPH’S TABLE

Joseph 3

The people of Sicily were suffering from a terrible drought, and they prayed to St. Joseph for relief.  They promised to hold a feast in honor of St. Joseph at the harvest if he would send rain.  The rains came and the people held a feast for St. Joseph. They called it “St. Joseph’s Table”. Through the centuries people have prayed to St. Joseph for a favor and used this festivity to offer thanks, inviting the poor to their homes to also take part in the feast. The “favor” requested must not be for personal gain or benefit, but for the good of another.
