For those who attended the last meeting on Tuesday February 9, here is the information on the book Pete D’Alema spoke about.
I LOVE this book so far! Below is a link to Amazon, but it is sold through a bunch on online retailers. The book is relatively new but is set up similarly to the True Devotion to Mary consecration book by St. louis de Montfort in that it is a 33 day process with daily prayers, readings, and reflections on St. Joseph’s life. One of my favorite parts so far is that it dispels the myth that St. Joseph was an elderly man when he married Mary. On the contrary, all the evidence suggests he was very young and in the prime of his life to be able to take care of the Holy Family in his trade as a carpenter and all the various difficult trips that they made in their life between the 80 mile trip to bethlehem, the flight to Egypt, and the tri-annual trips St. Joseph would have made to Jerusalem as an observant Jewish man. The book speaks to St. Joseph’s great piety and virtue in order to make him a worthy spouse of Mary!
