Go to Joseph
The just man, St. Joseph, is an example for all of us. He is especially a model for young men to answer the challenges in all walks of life. St Joseph is the patron of workers and of families. He is also the special patron of priests. Priests are married to the Church in a virginal life; they are the special guardians of the Eucharist and have this holy saint as their special patron. During this Year of the Priest, ask for the intercession of St. Joseph for our priests. Ask him to aid those young men whom God is calling to the priesthood, to respond to that call with courage and generosity.
