St. Joseph

My mom sent me a link today for a fun craft project to do with Emma for the feast of St. Joseph, which falls on March 19th. Many show devotion to St. Joseph by celebrating his 7 Sorrows and 7 joys seven Sundays before the feast - which means today! Even though we're not Catholic per se, we still love & cherish Joseph and all he did for his family so long ago, which our own fathers and husbands continue to do in his light still today.
So HERE is the link to the craft - a St. Joseph Altar - which looks really fun (and with all the snow outside - we can all use a little more indoor activities here at the Castro Academy!).
If you happen to enjoy this craft, send a photo of your completed altar to Evann and she'll post it on the St. Joseph Altar Blog! (And send it to us, too! We'd love to see it!)
So now, without further ado, here is the 1st of the 7 sorrows & joys of St. Joseph...

 St. JOSEPH, Chaste Spouse of the Holy Mother of God, by the SORROW with which thy heart was pierced at the thought of a cruel separation from Mary, and by the deep JOY that thou didst feel when the angel revealed to thee the ineffable mystery of the Incarnation, obtain for us from Jesus and Mary, the grace of surmounting all anxiety. Win for us from the Adorable Heart of Jesus the unspeakable peace of which He is the Eternal Source.

May you all have had a wonderful first month of 2010, and we'll see you tomorrow for FEBRUARY!!
