Why should we focus on Saint Joseph? The answer given by the Church, which John Paul II affirms, is that God entrusted his most precious treasures to this humble carpenter. Jesus the Son of God, and Mary, the immaculate mother of Jesus Christ, were given to Joseph’s care. If God trusts Joseph with responsibility for Jesus and Mary, we too can confidently entrust ourselves to his intercession and partronage.
