12/7/2021 – Last Day in Year of Saint Joseph

Today is the last day of the Year of St Joseph and the feast of one of his spiritual daughters, St Mary Joseph Rossello.

St Mary Joseph founded an order to educate children and care for the sick under the patronage of Our Lady of Mercy and St Joseph. Sr Mary Joseph’s love of St Joseph, is reflected in the advice she often gave to her nuns:

“The hands should be at work, the heart with God.”

We, like Sr Mary Joseph’s nuns, are also called to imitate St Joseph. And what better way than to pray the rosary. In the rosary, we not only meditate on his faithful loving service to the Christ Child but in fingering the beads as we pray, our hands are at work, while our heart is with God.
