"Devotion to St. Joseph is one of the choicest graces that God can give to a soul, for it is tantamount to revealing the entire treasury of Our Lord's graces. When God wishes to raise a soul to greater heights, He unites it to St. Joseph by giving it a strong love for the good saint." St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868)
If you wish to increase your trust, love and devotion for St. Joseph, this beautiful collection of thirty-one meditations is a must-have for your spiritual reading collection. Noted for his book, 'Little Month of Saint Joseph', Fr. Marin de Boylesve, S.J. (1813-1892) shows in his next set of reflections how the greatness of St. Joseph was foretold through the life of the favourite son of Jacob. God blessed the first Joseph of the Old Testament with so many graces, great power and authority, but this was only a prelude to what He had prepared for the second Joseph of the New Testament, the hidden, humble son of David chosen to be the foster father of His beloved Son and the spouse of His Immaculate Mother.
In addition to the meditations, there are several accounts of the miraculous interventions of this great saint, also thirty-three sacred illustrations and various pious devotions are included. Are you in need of a great heavenly intercessor to safeguard your spiritual and temporal interests? "Go to Joseph, and do all that he shall say to you." (Gen. 41:55)
