No words of St. Joseph are recorded in Scripture, and yet the Church possesses an indescribably rich knowledge of this great saint.
The Life and Glories of Saint Joseph, originally published in 1881, will astound readers in both its scope and depth. Based on Scripture, and supported by Tradition and the depositions of saints, it is a carefully reasoned analysis of the entirety of St. Joseph’s role in the history of Salvation and the life of the Church. It includes details about his prefigurement in the Old Testament, his noble lineage, his spiritual life and his relationship to Mary and Jesus; why he has been named by Pope Pius IX "The Patron of the Universal Church" and many more beautiful insights.
