From the Blurb:


SAINT JOSEPH PASSES THROUGH THE GOSPEL WITHOUT our hearing him utter as much as a single word. But God had selected him for a special mission: to look after two of the greatest treasures who have ever been on earth- Jesus and Mary. And Joseph has a personality of uncommon richness. The figure of Joseph is also an incentive God has given us to stir up hope in the ordinary person. Joseph of Nazareth is a series of reflections on the life of Saint Joseph in the light of faith and based on revelation. At the end the reader's love for and devotion to this great saint will have grown considerably. For Joseph, the last of the patriarchs, shows how any one of us can come to be a great saint.
