Product Description

  • The Truth About Saint Joseph: Encountering The Most Hidden of Saints
  • Learn about the "forgotten saint"
  • Amazing, eye-opening book
  • Perfect for deepening your love of Saint Joseph


Joseph is the most hidden of the saints: a simple, retiring, and humble man of Nazareth. His exterior life reveals nothing extraordinary or striking. Yet he is exalted by the Church as, next to Mary herself, the greatest of all the saints and even Patron of the Universal Church.

Do you know why?

Apparently, the Church knows more about St. Joseph than most of us do. This remarkable book finally breaks the silence.
Drawing not on private revelations or pious legends, this beautiful and edifying work unearths many truths about St. Joseph hidden in the Gospel, to bring them to light and make use of them in Joseph's honor.

Here you'll encounter surprising details about the life Joseph led on Earth in the most intimate companionship of Christ as well as the role he is playing even today in the life of the Universal Church.

Among the things you'll discover:
•    Why it's essential that Joseph be descended from King David
•    Why this descendent of Kings was fated to live in poverty and obscurity
•    How Joseph was glorious even in his poverty and humiliation
•    What his daily life in Nazareth was like
•    Why toil and suffering were constant companions to Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
•    How he sanctified his daily labor, and how you can sanctify yours
•    Why, without Joseph, Mary could not have become the Mother of God
•    Why Joseph particularly welcomed the visit of the shepherds
•    How and why Joseph was essential to the hidden life of Jesus in Nazareth
•    How Joseph was able to remain calm and courageous in affliction and danger; and how you can, too!
•    The three ways in which St. Joseph is an image of the Heavenly Father Himself
•    Why he's known as God's right-hand man
•    How even now St. Joseph is a benefactor to all members of Christ's kingdom, including you!
•    Why his death was the happiest a man has ever endured (and three ways he can help yours be happy, too)
•    Why, in times of perplexity, St. Joseph is best the saint to turn to
•    Four reasons St. Joseph particularly deserves your devotion today
•    And much more!

The Truth about St. Joseph

Review: Enjoying the book. There was one line that I thought was not historically correct (Magi went back and turned Christian when it was 30 years later that Christ began his mission)

The Truth About Saint Joseph

Review: This is a wonderful book. Extremely well written and an easy read. Extremely informative. I love St. Joseph, but he is the 'forgotten saint', so it can be hard to find information about St. Joseph. This book filled in a lot of gaps for me. Love this book.

St. Joseph book and rosary

Review: I bought this St Joseph book and Rosary to give to my son for his birthday. The rosary is beautiful and I love the book which I asked my son if I could borrow it to read it and I'm doing that now before giving it to him. St. Joseph has always been one of my favorite saints so I was happy to get this book because I had never seen one before on this Saint.


Review: Just part way through the book and i am grateful to be learning more about St. Joseph. Reading a little a day for lent. So far very good. Thank you

The Truth about St. Joseph

Review: Great read!

Saint Joseph Encountering the most Hidden of Saints

Review: So little is really known of Saint Joseph. This book opens the door on who he was a little farther to give more insight. Not only was Saint Joseph the faithful spouse of Blessed Mary and the loving foster-father to our Savior Jesus Christ but also a holy and humble man. Always obedient to the will of God in all things without question or doubt. He is the role model for all husbands and fathers in how to put God first and then family. This book is a must read for all Catholics and Christians.

Truth about St. Joseph book

Review: Interesting read about St. Joseph. Will read it again so good!

The Truth About Saint Joseph

Review: This book is a winner. Well written, an easy yet fascinating read. Father Meschler thoughtfully presented the good Saint in a way in which it brought him into the forefront in his role as a father, husband and guardian of our Lord Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this work to all who have a particular devotion to St. Joseph. God Bless.

Great book!

Review: I knew very little about Saint Joseph but my spiritual director has a great devotion to him so wanted to learn more. This very easy to read book is full of information about this wonderful Saint.

The truth about St Joseph

Review: It was not as revealing or impressive as the description. I was anticipating more of the Catholicism on the meaning of dreams and how St Joseph was an example of how that works. Why should he have had the faith. I also wanted to see more of a commentary on "fatherhood" especially adoptive, since we have an adopted son.


Review: Helpful to increase your faith!
