The chaplet dedicated to St Joseph, foster father of Jesus, contains 15 groups of 3 beads. (see link to prayers below). 15 represent the 15 mysteries of the rosary. Joseph was not only visited by angels but was entrusted to be the foster father of Jesus. He taught his son many things including the carpenter’s trade. In second century Galilee, a Christian apologist by the name of Justin Martyr spoke of the work of the son of Joseph the carpenter. He said it was still common to see farmers using plows made by the carpenter Jesus of Nazareth.
PATRON of FAMILIES: St Joseph still intercedes for us today in the deepest of care and detail – as patron of the family. He is the model for men to follow as fathers. He is also the patron of cabinetmakers and craftspeople, a happy and holy death, the selling and buying of homes, expectant mothers and immigrants
