St Joseph was a pious Israelite, who said his prayers in the synagogue and made pilgrimages to the Temple. But was that it...? He must have had a much deeper prayer life than this to be led by the angels at crucial junctures, as we find so often in the Infancy Narratives. How can we men today have a prayer life that likewise influences our day to day decisions?

We can look to St Joseph as a model of virtue for us as men in the modern age, encouraged by his faith, his fortitude, his humility. At the same time, we must remember that St Joseph’s circumstances were unique; he was the head of a family that included the Immaculate Conception and the sinless Son of God! And so while he was not lacking in virtue, there are some virtues that he did not need to exercise day to day in the House of Nazareth in the way that we need to do: forgiveness, paternal correction, and so on. How do we look to him as our model, our protector and our fatherly intercessor in the life of holiness, while remembering that our circumstances are different from his and will often require from us a different response?

Join Fr Henry Whisenant and a group of Catholic Men as we journey together with St Joseph as our lead.
