In December of 2020, Pope Francis announced (in his apostolic letter titled Patris Corde) the beginning of the “Year of Saint Joseph”.
Pope Francis describes many reasons why this year was dedicated to Saint Joseph. In one article published on the Vatican news website, Pope Francis’ words are summarized:
In him, “Jesus saw the tender love of God,” the one that helps us accept our weakness, because “it is through” and despite “our fears, our frailties, and our weakness” that most divine designs are realized. “Only tender love will save us from the snares of the accuser,” emphasizes the Pontiff, and it is by encountering God’s mercy especially in the Sacrament of Reconciliation that we “experience His truth and tenderness,” – because “we know that God’s truth does not condemn us, but instead welcomes, embraces, sustains and forgives us” (2).

Saint Joseph Apparel
Saint Joseph Premium Tee from Totally Catholic Tees
St. Joseph, a man of little words in scripture (well, actually no words) but great faith, strength, and holiness. St. Joseph, pray for us!
Saint Joseph – Terror of Demons Heavyweight Garment Dyed Tee also from Totally Catholic Tees
This Saint Joseph Tee takes on the saint’s more obscure title, Terror of Demons. Read the inspiration behind the design below!
From the designer (Marie):
“I wanted to make this shirt because many people are unaware of the ferocious title awarded to the foster father of our Lord. Also, in a world that castigates masculinity and claims fatherhood non-essential, Saint Joseph reminds us that these are vital aspects of family and culture. The devil is prowling, waiting to catch us in the deceit of our own hearts. Saint Joseph will always come to the protection of those who seek his intercession. In this year of Saint Joseph we could all benefit from becoming more acquainted with this quiet saint.”
Saint Joseph Socks from Sock Religious
St. Joseph is the protector of the church and an amazing example of how to be a husband and spouse. Check out the carpenters square in the pattern! St. Joseph didn’t say much… well anything we know of, but we have so much to learn from him. We love the “quote” on the bottom of these socks! They are available in adult sizes and kid sizes too!

Saint Joseph the Worker Candle by Corda Candles
These rugged scents of leather and sawdust are inspired by St. Joseph the Worker. He is the patron saint of the universal Church, workers, carpenters, fathers, travelers, and the dying, and his prayers are frequently invoked by those seeking employment and those trying to buy or sell a house. His feast day is May 1.
Behind the Inspiration
St. Joseph lovingly provided for his family through the work of his hands. Scripture tells us Jesus was “the carpenter’s son” and Joseph is often depicted with the tools of his trade. The leather of his work apron and the sawdust from his cuttings inspired this candle.
St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us.

Consecration to Saint Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father
In this richly researched and lovingly presented program of consecration to St. Joseph, Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, brings to life the wonders, the power, and the ceaseless love of St. Joseph, Universal Patron of the Church and the Terror of Demons. This book is available to pre-order at Gifts of the Holy Spirit, but is also available on Amazon.
In the Consecration to Saint Joseph book, Father Donald Calloway calls upon the readers to become “apparitions of Saint Joseph” by modeling a life of virtue that Saint Joseph once modeled.
In the boy’s journal, Be Yourself: A Catholic Journal for Boys, young men are given prompts, prayers and a gentle guide on how to live a life that demonstrates great faith and virtue.
Two prompts specifically bring the reader’s attention to the relationship Our Lord Jesus had with Saint Joseph. One entry has the Scripture passage that describes Jesus being lost and finally found at the Temple. The reader is asked to imagine what the journey home was like. What did the Holy Family talk about? How did Jesus feel? Was there a lot of silence? etc.
Another entry asks the reader to imagine Saint Joseph’s workshop while working together. What type of conversations did they have? What did the two build together? The journal then asks the reader who they would like to learn from . . . a carpenter, mechanic, computer technician, etc. This book provides a ton of opportunity for a boy to think about the man he wants to become and creating a plan that will allow him to become that man.
Erica and Greg Johnson, owners of The Little Catholic Box,
say it is a “great, age-appropriate tool for spiritual growth” and wrote the following review for the Be Yourself Journal for boys:
We are working through this journal with our 10 year old son. It is clear how much work lovingly went into creating it. So far, the exercises seem to engage him without boring or overwhelming him. The overall structure and design is fun and attractive. Overall, a wonderful find! We plan to purchase the other journals by this author for our other children as well.
We hope this “Year of Saint Joseph” inspires you to walk closer with Our Lord Jesus Christ, and allows you to experience the Peace only He can give!
