St. Joseph and the child Jesus. Fatherhood is not exclusively or even primarily biological; it is a vocation. All men are called to be fathers, just as all women are called to be mothers; to fit our lives, work, and careers, if we have them, into that calling.
I can count on St. Joseph's intercession for the protection of my family just as he protected Jesus and Mary. I can count on His intercession in my work because he too worked to support his Holy Family. I can count on His intercession for my spiritual development as he is the patron of the Universal Church of which I am a part. His virtues are certainly worth emulating.
