The rosary is an ancient and still powerful form of Christian prayer. Most of us are familiar with its physical form — a circle of five sets of 10 beads, each set separated by larger single bead, connected to a shorter chain of beads and ending in a crucifix. The practice of praying the rosary poses a challenge to our contemporary restlessness, to our constant search for something new to occupy our attention. It might be appropriate to call it…

To Joseph the Heavenly Father entrusted the fathering of His Divine Son, Whom God had conceived in the Joseph’s spouse Mary. Very little of St. Joseph’s life is recorded in Sacred Scripture, and not one word of his is preserved there. Yet, in this quiet, almost hidden life, Joseph faithfully lived out his role…
