"We choose St. Joseph, virginal spouse of the Mother of God, and patron of the Universal Church, as our spiritual father and co-patron, entrusting to his care the spiritual and temporal welfare of our community and of each Sister." - MSSR Constitution
Ite ad Joseph
"Go to Joseph" - the meaning of which you can learn more about here - is the aspiration for the month of March, the month of St. Joseph. In this simple phrase one finds a profound confidence in the intercessory power of St. Joseph. As head of the household and father of the family, Mary and Jesus both went to St. Joseph for their needs; and if they went to St. Joseph, so can we. During this month of St. Joseph, we pray that your devotion may grow to love he who is the patron of the universal Church.
Septuagesima is now but nine days away, and so in the month of February, the Church turns our attention toward the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ - that we may begin to prepare our hearts for the holy season of Lent.
"At that time, after eight days were accomplished,
that the child should be circumcised, his name was called JESUS,
which was called by the angel before he was conceived in the womb."
- Luke 2:21
