One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Joseph is an essential book for any Christian.
Saint Joseph is often called the hidden saint.
Although there is so little written about Joseph in the Scripture and in the apocrypha, or perhaps because there is so little written, the life of Saint Joseph can be quite a complicated subject. The theological study of Saint Joseph, known as Josephology, shows us how differently the saint has been perceived throughout history, in different parts of the world, and in different denominations.
As we go looking for Saint Joseph, we must be aware of this winding path. From the sometimes conflicting evidence, and our faith, we must make our own informed judgments.
