The First Saint I Ever Heard Of

Slightly adapted from a post in one of my old blogs

Today is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of Mary. People love to quote the saints, but we cannot quote St. Joseph. None of his words have been preserved.
I take that back about not being able to quote St. Joseph. We cannot quote his words, but we can, and should, "quote" his devotion to Jesus and Mary.
St. Joseph was the first saint I ever heard of, but that was because of the children's aspirins! LOL!
I like simple, homely {homely as in homelike, not, definitely not, as in unattractive] images. I love to think about St. Joseph walking the floor when the Baby Jesus was teething.

Love your connection through the aspirin, Rochelle! We had a St. Joseph's Hospital here, so that was another connection for me as a child. St. J. would be a wonderful role model for all the men who cheerfully raise children they didn't biologically father, but are in every other way are there for them.
