Mary and Saint Joseph

The month of May, in the Catholic Church, is dedicated to Mary, and on May 1st it was the feast of “Saint Joseph the Worker.” This celebration was instituted in order to combat communism’s emphasis on workers’ worth for the state and to remind people of everyone’s worth before God, no matter what their profession is. Joseph was a humble carpenter and not prestigious in his lifetime, yet he is greatly respected by the Church. I thought it was interesting that his feast opens the month of Mary.

“Mary” is one of the options for this week’s haikai challenge from Frank J. Tassone.

The month of May: Saint Joseph,
Mary’s faithful spouse.
