The Altar is a medium of petition and thanksgiving.
As with any tradition, our St. Joseph Altar has evolved and gathered life from each member of our family and each year is a bit different. Back in 1999, I began the Virtual St. Joseph Altar. A few adaptations have been made, but the Virtual Altar still offers many of the basics, not to mention a clean kitchen.
This Feast Day was an extra special day as Pope Francis was installed today. Pope Francis presented St. Joseph as a role model for us all. Read the entire homily of today's Petrine Mass.
St. Joseph is our good friend. He has answered our prayers many times and I am confident that he will continue to do so. Viva San Giuseppe!
