Why has Pope Francis declared 2021 the Year of St. Joseph? Because we all have something to learn from Joseph's example of humility, obedience, courage, and chastity. He is the guardian of the Holy Family, and as such he is the patron of the universal Church, as well as fathers, families, workers, and the dying. Through his intercession, we can all draw closer to our Lord and our Lady. St. Joseph, pray for us!
