Happy Feast of Saint Joseph

Happy Feast of Saint Joseph - husband of Mary and earthly father of Jesus. Joseph is revered by the Carmelite Order as our 'Principal Protector'. Just as he looked after Mary, so he cares for us, the Carmelite Family, as we honour Mary as our sister and mother. 

"Saint Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten families." - Saint Pope John Paul II
