Perfect verification


Of old it was said to the needy and suffering people in the kingdom of Egypt: 'Go to Joseph, and do all that he should say to you.' (Gen 41:55). The same is now said by the Sovereign Pontiff to all needy and suffering people in the kingdom of the Church: GO TO JOSEPH . . .

What was truly said of the first Joseph, as to his future, and as to his goodness, his chastity, his patience, his wisdom, his influence with the king, his power over the people, and his love for his brethren, is verified much more perfectly, even to this day, in the second JOSEPH.

– Herbert Cardinal Vaughan
Archbishop of Westminster
