THE YEAR OF ST JOSEPH (December 8, 2020 – December 8, 2021)
March: The Month of St Joseph
The Church has assigned a special emphasis to each month of the calendar year. The month of March is known as the Month of St Joseph and is punctuated by the Solemnity of St Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary on March 19th.
Holy Mother Church in Her liturgical tradition has ascribed to different days of the week particular focal points for reflection.
We see, for example, that Sundays honor Christ’s Resurrection; Mondays, the Holy Spirit and holy souls in Purgatory. Tuesdays lay claim to the Holy Angels, and Thursdays are devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and thus the Holy Priesthood. Fridays are dedicated to Christ’s Passion and to His Sacred Heart, while Saturdays honor Our Lady, because it was on Holy Saturday that She waited in joyful hope with the fearful disciples for the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
Holy Mother Church has given Wednesday, “the day the week turns on” to St. Joseph. This means that the middle of the week is the perfect time to reflect on, be grateful for, and intercede on behalf of holy fatherhood, both spiritual and biological.
