Here in the season of Lent in the Year of St. Joseph and on the eve of the Feast of St. Joseph, it is truly appropriate to reflect today on the virtues of St. Joseph. It was Jesus Himself who inspired and also imitated the perfection of virtue in St. Joseph, and we are called to likewise imitate the virtues of this foster father of Jesus and our own foster father--He who is the tender-hearted image of the Eternal Father--Holy Joseph, the Just and the Chaste.
