As well as being a patron of fathers, St Joseph is patron of marriages and families too. This is very useful in our day and age as many marriages need all the help they can get!Marriage is attacked spiritually, emotionally and even financially in many countries. Adultery is becoming more and more justified in our Western cultures. Further the ‘me’ generation’s egotism is contributing to the selfishness which makes a spouse stray or ignore the other’s needs, forgetting  the needs and emotional safety of their spouse and children who they vowed to love and cherish on the wedding day. 

Heavenly warriors are needed in the fight against this spiritual conflict of sin and selfishness.

A great warrior is the powerful St Joseph! A silent, humble yet courageous Saint who protected Mary and the Christ child from the anger and jealousy of Herod and who never let them down!

As marriage is the source of many blessings and is in fact, the ‘domestic church’ on earth it is, sadly, the target for many attacks. 
 It is a great blessing and a proof of sanctity for a man and woman to live in love and to raise their children well in today’s society.
