2014-03-19

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, people must get creative to find ways to pray in peace. As a result, Fr. Marcello Stanzione published a series of reflections from Popes, saints and priests on St. Joseph, patron of the family. It's divided into 365 chapters, one for each day of the year.

FR. MARCELLO STANZIONE
Author, "St. Joseph, a daily meditation for the Patron Saint of the Family”
"For us Catholics, he's very important because he is the patron of the Holy Family of Nazareth. He's the patron of all fathers, and today we need to regain that sense of fatherhood.”

St. Joseph is also known as the "saint of silence.” Marcello Stanzione seized this aspect to call on people to use silence for reflection.

Author, "St. Joseph, a daily meditation for the Patron Saint of the Family”
"Nowadays people are in a hurry, they can't read long books anymore. These are small pills of wisdom, divided into one thought per day, just five minutes of mediation.”

Each of the chapters is one paragraph long and includes lots of information on St. Joseph, whose feast day is March 19.

The books is only available in Italian, but version in other languages are in the works.
