THE IMITATION OF SAINT JOSEPH

Product Description
Each age has its heresies, and ours is a hatred of origin, of fatherhood. As an anchor against the wave of patricide, a light in the darkness of our age, the Church has been fixing her light, ever increasingly, on Saint Joseph. It is him to whom we look. He is who we must imitate.

In this illuminating work, Fr. Matthew Kauth opens our eyes to what Joseph saw so that we might imitate what he imitated.
• Part I examines the teachings of Aquinas to help us understand the depths of our human nature and why we come to love some things more than others, and what it means to imitate that which we love, for better or for worse.
• Part II looks back at Joseph’s lineage, providing a sweeping tour of salvation history and the patriarchs of the Old Testament, showing how Joseph was their fulfillment.
• Part III brings us inside the life of the Holy Family, taking us along for their harrowing journeys to Bethlehem and Egypt, and their daily life in Nazareth, to show us how growing closer to Joseph and imitating him binds us to the hearts of Jesus and Mary.
• Part IV closes with a look at our lives today and the life of the Church, and the challenges we face to live a life of virtue in a fallen world, imploring us to turn to Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church.
In these pages, a true image of Joseph begins to emerge from obscurity. Silence itself begins to speak eloquently.

Go therefore to Joseph. Imitate what you see. And live without fear under the patronage of our just father.
