Holding his Savior...

St. Joseph, the humble, obscure carpenter, from the scorned, obscure village of Nazareth, holds the One who created the dome of Heaven in his arms. How wondrous! How complete must have been his awe and amazement, the awareness of his divine mission spoken by the Angel, in a dream, to care for the Creator of all the universe! To teach his "apprentice" son how to turn the spoke of a wagon wheel, and hammer a hub, when this Very "apprentice" had spoken the heavens into existence, naming every single star!

How can I get a copy of this picture of St. Joseph?

Hi Jeanne,
I'm not sure where I found it, but when I held my mouse cursor over the image, it showed a website URL, so you might try that. God bless. Hope it works for you.
