For this Year of St. Joseph, we cite #554 from The Forge:
Love Saint Joseph a lot. Love him with all your soul, because he, together with Jesus, is the person who has most loved our Blessed Lady and been closest to God. He is the person who has most loved God, after our Mother.
—He deserves your affection, and it will do you good to get to know him, because he is the Master of the interior life, and has great power before the Lord and before the Mother of God.
 Tonight, Wednesday, we have a recollection for young professionals, starting at 8 p.m.
