Product Description

  • The Life and Glories of Saint Joseph
  • A beautiful book about the "Forgotten saint"
  • Perfect way to learn about the Patron of the Universal Church
  • Many beautiful insights


No words of St. Joseph are recorded In Scripture. In fact, little mention is made of him there. Yet, despite these seeming limitations, the Church nonetheless possesses an indescribably rich knowledge of St. Joseph and of his cultus.

This book will astound most readers both with its scope and with its profundity. Based mainly on Scripture, but supported also by Tradition and the depositions of saints, it is a carefully reasoned analysis of the entirety of that great saint's role in the history of salvation and the life of the Church.

Includes details about his spiritual life and noble lineage; how he was prefigured in the Old Testament; his relationship to Mary and Jesus; why he has been named by Pope Pius IX "The Patron of the Universal Church;" and so forth.

Review: Gave me a renewed appreciation and love for St. Joseph.

Marvelouse St. Joseph

Review: Clearly stated and backed up with numerous facts from diverse sources that I would not have at my disposal. Very informative and not difficult to read or follow up on. A joyful learning experience.

St. Joseph

Review: Excellent so far, am not very far into the book yet.

Finally a wonderful book about Saint Joseph

Review: There is not a lot written about Saint Joseph to understand his life and the role he played as Jesus' foster father. I'm glad I found this book. It's a treasure.

The Life and Glories of St. Joseph

Review: A book to be truly treasured. St. Joseph, a man of faith and virtue, blessed by God.

Life and Imaginings about Joseph

Review: No bibliography and many quotes from Maria d Agreda with no references. Joseph was awesome but even pulling a rabbit out of a hat wouldn't get all that's imagined in this volume.

Would love more books like this one

Review: The complexity of the writing can sometimes be a little overwhelming. I am a very educated person and have to read it in "small doses" or I feel like I am not getting everything I should be from the information. I will not give up, however! Cons: Too complex at times; Pros: Beautiful cover, Very detailed, Very informative, Would like more like this
