This year we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Pope Pius IX declaring St. Joseph the “Patron of the Universal Church.” Although St. Joseph has many titles (such as “Terror of Demons”), his patronage of Catholics throughout the world has been justly celebrated by saints and struggling laity alike.
To celebrate this incredible anniversary, Michael invites friend of the show Fr. Donald Calloway to talk about how St. Joseph can help you in your daily life and why now might be a good time for a consecration to St. Joseph. Fr. Calloway’s latest book, Consecration to St. Joseph, follows up on his work encouraging devotion to Mary and Joseph and he shares the wisdom gleaned from leading countless retreats and pilgrimages.
Find out more about a consecration to St. Joseph at Fr. Calloway’s site, ConsecrationToStJoseph.org, where you can also download art, guides, and a group program. Listen to our interview below or on your favorite podcast app.
