St. Joseph is the descendant of David whom God chose as a husband for Mary and as a putative father for the Infant Jesus. Assuring a husband for the Virgin Mother God preserved the honor of Mary while keeping secret the virginal conception of Mary. Saint Joseph also had the role of supporting the material need of the Holy Family by his work as a carpenter. For this reason as well he is called the Foster Father of the Infant Jesus.The blessed Virgin Mary herself put it merely: "Your Father and I were seeking you" (Lc 2, 48). In the Old Testament, Patriarch Joseph, son of Jacob, is an image of St. Joseph, the husband of Mary.
Devotion to Saint Joseph is fairly recent in the Catholic Church. Saint Francis de Sales had a great devotion to this great saint, but we owe the development of this devotion for a great deal to Saint Teresa of Avila.
"I took as my lawyer and patron the glorious Saint Joseph, and I strongly recommended me to him, and his assistance procured me more goods than I could ask of him, and I do not remember ever having made a petition to him that he had not answered. This is a marvelous thing to think at: the innumerable and wonderful graces which God have favored me through his intercession. The others saints seem to have received from God the power to assist us in a special necessity, but this glorious saint, I know by experience, assists us in all our needs. " (Saint Teresa of Avila)

a humble plea for help
To whom it may concern!
I am writing you from Croatia. Right now I am in a mental hospital due to my depression. Furthermore I lost my job, so I am devoid of any money. May I be so free to ask you to send me a prayer book to St Joseph? It will help me to my condition. Unfortunately I dont have any money to pay, you, so I am relying to your generosity.
Thank you very much beforehand,
