(c. 90 BC – 18 AD)
We don’t know much about St. Joseph, but we do know he was a carpenter and one of the descendants of King David. God spoke to him in four different dreams, and each time, he did what God commanded. He married Mary and moved his family as needed for their well being. With Mary, he searched for Jesus for three days when the child went missing. Mostly, though, he is honored for raising Jesus as his own son, teaching him his trade and the Jewish religion.
