POPE FRANCIS (January 16, 2015 (Philippines))

“I have great love for Saint Joseph, because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table I have an image of Saint Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church!”

Pope Francis advised people to leave a “note” under the image of the saint for help whenever they have a problem.

POPE FRANCIS (January 16, 2015 (Philippines))

“Joseph’s rest revealed God’s will to him. In this moment of rest in the Lord, as we pause from our many daily obligations and activities, God is also speaking to us.”

St. Joseph is described in the Gospel as a discreet but determined man, virtues that Pope Francis values.

POPE FRANCIS (January 16, 2015 (Philippines))

“But like Saint Joseph, once we have heard God’s voice, we must rise from our slumber; we must get up and act.”
