You can't get any more manly than St. Joseph

It's pretty hard being a boy these days. On one hand you have the emasculators trying to turn you into a limp, pretty pushover and on the other hand you have guys who claim that anybody who doesn't have hundreds of women in his past is a beta male and not worthy to hang out with real men.  All of this is piffle. You can't get any more manly than holy St. Joseph.

Thanks, Dymphna! I like your comments on young men nowadays (I'm 67 and grew up in a whole 'nother world), and especially your description of St. Joseph. It takes great strength of character (gift of God, of course) to be kind and gentle! I also pray to St. Joseph to help me - at least in spirit - with my home carpentry projects, and he has never failed me and never will.

I love St. Joseph.

Thank you for such a great post!


I was told by a sweet Father at Our Lady of the Snows Shrine that St. Bernadette had a special devotion to St. Joseph. And, she was to have told people that on his feast day, you can ask him for any favor!


I had asked him for help as a young woman for guidance in finding my career (I'm not a trust fund baby) and in finding a husband. (It takes one to know one!)

He came through for both!

Thank you St. Joseph.
