Mary and St. Joseph
Those looking for the saints to entrust their prayers to would find a great variety of Catholic saints are becoming increasingly popular. St. Joseph and St. Andrew have been included in Christianity since the dawn of Christianity. They have the ability to bring people to the kind of closeness to God that I always knew was the purpose of living a saintly life.
There are many other aspects of St. Joseph that make him a wonderful saint and that has made him one of the many saints that many Catholics claim as their patron. He was a courageous man who would do what it took to protect his community and people. His status as a member of the Inner Kingdom was often done through holding a township, a village or a parish.
Joseph was even called a martyr by many Orthodox Christians. He was a man that died for what he believed in and is honored today for that. Some that were baptized as children in their parents’ name as children as a form of “mercy” on them. They believed that they would find a special place in heaven in their ancestors’ company.
St. Joseph was an incredible man that would bring us down to God’s will and act as the powerful advocate of the Christian faith. He was able to defend Christians during their most trying times. That is why he is the patron saint of many people. He will bring them to the holy place, take them to the sanctuary and pray for them.
The African Catholics in the 1800’s made it a point to call St. Joseph the “Patron Saint of the Church.” There were many homes, communities and parishes that were founded on his teachings. He was often the one that founded a community or a parish from the heart of the Christian faith. He was a symbol of hope for many African Americans in the world today.
One of the many St. Joseph saints is the two-time married St. Mary Mother of God. He lived in the two words, Patmos. The Greek word for “patience” from which the word “patience” is derived. He is the patron saint of those that want to find a way through their trials and tribulations.
The St. Mary of Africa is considered to be the “Patron Saint of the Ladies.” She was often called a saint because of the many gifts that she has given to those that are in her community. She is often regarded as a mother and a motherly figure. She often left her own children to be with the priest while she worked to provide a stable and Christian life for her people.
The Tabor Rovigo and Hercykteos were the holy name that the holy woman has left for those who need a mother. She has given the young girls of the community hope through her work as a priest. She has given strength to the young women.
There are other St. Mary saints that are listed as various Christian Patron saints. It seems that there are always new additions to the list. Those in the Catholic Church who live in more liberal environments have included many of the Saints mentioned in the Roman Catholic book of the Index. The reference to the Index for Protestant countries is usually an outdated reference to ensure that the same works are being read.
The role of the Catholic Church has not always been one of full support to their Christian community. The documents used to protect Christianity today also include manyNazi-allied information and symbols. A word to all the churches: please be careful not to be caught up in any bias during this Holy Year of Mercy and Light.
