Given the day on which it landed this year, many Catholics are probably not aware that this past Saturday was the Solemnity of St. Joseph.
Unfortunately, St. Joseph tends to be the overlooked member of the Holy Family. Which I think is a shame, as he is an incredible example for the laity. Although I have grown to appreciate and understand the Blessed Mother more over the years, the truth is I have never been that Marian. Personally, I am drawn far more to St. Joseph. I am sure there are many others out there like me. Explore some of the links below for more on St. Joseph, but I would like to expand a bit upon why I think he is such a great example for the laity.
