Sleeping St. Joseph

Taken from the Pope Francis’ January 16, 2015 address to families in the Philippines:

I would like to tell you something very personal. I like St Joseph very much. He is a strong man of silence. On my desk I have a statue of St Joseph sleeping. While sleeping he looks after the Church. Yes, he can do it! We know that. When I have a problem or a difficulty, I write on a piece of paper and I put it under his statue so he can dream about it. This means please pray to St Joseph for this problem.

Love this sleeping St. Joseph. We need more statues which reflect the humanness of the saints!
