While St. Patrick might be the most celebrated saint in Scranton, St. Joseph got his day in the spotlight on March 19 as we celebrated his feast day which is close to the Little Sisters hearts.
St. Joseph, who is known as the husband of the Blessed Mother, foster father of Jesus, and patron saint of the universal Church, is also the protector of the Little Sisters of the Poor. As their protector, I often hear the Sisters appeal to his intercessory prayers with the words: “St. Joseph, In This Hour, Show Your Power” as they go about their day caring for the elderly poor and completing tasks here in our home.
On Thursday, March 19, the Little Sisters celebrated their special friendship with a Mass celebrated by the Most Rev. James C. Timlin, D.D., bishop emeritus of the Diocese of Scranton, and several diocesan priests. Following the Mass, the priests served lunch and visited the Residents which is something they always enjoy.
While I could describe the event in detail, why don’t you just see for yourself?
