Saints in the Roman Canon (Part 2)

In the Roman Canon, after Mary is mentioned, we find St. Joseph. Although what is written about Joseph in the Gospels is fairly slim, we know Joseph. He is the spouse of the Ever Virgin Mary. He is the one who was betrothed to Mary when She was found to be with child. He intended to divorce Her quietly, when God sent an Angel in a dream to change his mind. And not only did Joseph not divorce Mary, he believed the Angel, loved Mary even more, and showed that love by fleeing into Egypt to avoid Herod’s henchmen. Joseph is the quiet husband, the head of the Holy Family, and a model of patience and virtue for every father of every family.

For the Greater Glory of God,
