A Unique Way to Honor Saint Joseph
Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, holds a special place in the hearts of Marian devotees everywhere. In recognition of his feast day on March 19, America Needs Fatima, through an on-line campaign, offered friends and supporters an opportunity to express this devotion in a singular way.
Often Saint Joseph is pictured holding a pure white lily as a sign of the chaste relationship he maintained with Mary, ever virgin. In honor of his manly purity, people on our email list were given the opportunity to have a lily placed around the magnificent statue of Saint Joseph right here in our headquarters in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.
The response was overwhelming! Just when America was swept into the chaos of the coronavirus, thousands of people reached out to Saint Joseph offering him a token of their affection and their trust. In a time of confusion and fear, they remembered that Saint Joseph, the protector of Jesus and Mary, will be our protector, too, and we should turn to him in times of uncertainty.
Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Terror of Demons, pray for us!
Pray for America!
Delivery and placement of the Lilies.
Thank you to all those who made this offering to St. Joseph possible.
