With the Apostolic Letter "Patris corde" ("With a Father’s Heart"), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.

To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a "Year of Saint Joseph" from today, 8 December 2020, to 8 December 2021.

St. Joseph was of the royal family of David by birth but was living in humble obscurity as a carpenter when God raised him to the highest sanctity and chose him to be the spouse of His Virgin Mother, and foster-father and guardian to Jesus. Joseph, says Holy Scripture, was a just man; he was innocent and pure, and became the husband of Mary, he was gentle and tender, as one worthy to be named the father of Jesus. When he learned that Mary carried within her womb the Lord of Heaven, he feared to take her as his wife, but an angel told him not to fear, and all doubts vanished.

When Herod sought the life of the divine infant, an angel told Joseph in a dream to flee with the Child and His Mother into Egypt. Joseph at once arose andobeyed.

Being directed by God in another vision he returned to the land of Herod Antipas, in Galilee, to his former home in Nazareth. When Jesus was a little older Joseph and Mary found him in the temple after being missing for three days. When Mary asked him why He had done this to them Jesus replied, “Did you not know that I must be about my Father’s business”? Even though he stayed in the temple unknown to His parents, in the end He was still obedient to them.

There is no further mention of St. Joseph in Scripture after this and he is presumed to have died before the marriage of Cana and the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. We can imagine the happiness of Jesus and Mary attending to his death praying by him and comforting him in his last moments.

  • Novena begins March 10th to March 18th

San José era de la familia real de David por nacimiento, pero vivía en la humilde oscuridad como carpintero cuando Dios lo elevó a la más alta santidad y lo eligió para ser el esposo de su Madre Virgen, y padre adoptivo y guardián de Jesús. José, dice la Sagrada Escritura, era un hombre justo; era inocente y puro, y se convirtió en el esposo de María, era manso y tierno, como alguien digno de ser llamado el padre de Jesús. Cuando se enteró de que María llevaba en su seno al Señor del Cielo, temió tomarla como esposa, pero un ángel le dijo que no temiera y todas las dudas se desvanecieron.

Cuando Herodes buscó al niño divino para matarlo, un ángel le dijo a José en un sueño que huyera con el niño y su madre a Egipto. José se levantó de inmediato y obedeció.

Siendo dirigido por Dios en otra visión, regresó a la tierra de Herodes Antipas, en Galilea, a su antiguo hogar en Nazaret. Cuando Jesús era un poco mayor, José y María lo encontraron en el templo después de estar tres días desaparecidos. Cuando María le preguntó por qué les había hecho esto, Jesús respondió: "¿No sabías que debo ocuparme de los asuntos de mi Padre"? Aunque permaneció en el templo sin que sus padres lo supieran, al final siguió siendo obediente a ellos. No hay más menciones de San José en las Escrituras después de esto y se presume que murió antes de las bodas de Caná y el comienzo del ministerio de Jesús. Podemos imaginar la alegría de Jesús y María asistiendo a su muerte rezando por él y consolándolo en sus últimos momentos.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence (that is, to abstain from meat and items made with meat).

For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

El Miércoles de Ceniza y el Viernes Santo son días obligatorios de ayuno y abstinencia para los católicos. Además, los viernes durante la Cuaresma son días obligatorios de abstinencia (abstenerse de carne y artículos que contienen carne).

Para los miembros de la Iglesia de rito latino, las normas son obligatorias desde la edad de 18 años hasta los 59. Cuando se ayuna, se le permite a la persona comer una comida completa, así como dos comidas más pequeñas que juntas no equivalgan a una comida completa. Las normas sobre la abstinencia de carne son vinculantes para los miembros de la iglesia católica de rito latino desde los 14 años en adelante.
