Joseph, according to gospel accounts, was a carpenter and a descendant of King David. Art and popular imagination have portrayed him as an old man, but this is likely false.

Embarrassed by Mary’s pregnancy, Joseph was told in a dream to take Mary as his wife. Thoughts of rejecting her for infidelity banished, he was faithful to his responsibility as her husband and foster father of Jesus.

St. Joseph was declared a patron of the universal Church in 1870, and is principal patron of Canada.

This is the ancient title for the feast celebrating the Incarnation of the Word. This feast is a joint celebration of Christ and the Blessed Virgin: of the Word who becomes the Son of Mary and of the virgin who becomes the Mother of God.

In the universal Church, this liturgy celebrates the beginning of redemption. It also honours Mary as the ‘new Eve’, the obedient and faithful woman who generously agrees to be the Mother of God. Mary cooperates freely in the plan of salvation.

Philip and James were apostles of Jesus. The choice of Philip as a disciple is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John’s Gospel records several conversations between Jesus and Philip, which demonstrates he was present throughout the Lord’s public ministry.

James, the son of Alphaeus (called ‘James the Less’ because he was younger than the other apostle James) is mentioned in Mark and in Acts, and is the author of the canonical epistle. According to historians, he was a Christian of high repute and died a martyr’s death by stoning about the year 62.

Both men were patron saints of hatters; St. Philip is also the patron of pastry chefs, while St. James is a patron of druggists.

The birth of John the Baptist was one of the earliest feasts to be named to a particular day on the Church calendar. June 24 was chosen as it is six months before the birth of Christ. With its proximity to the summer solstice, it signifies the waning of the light, while the birth of Jesus near the winter solstice marks the coming of the light. When John was born, his parents, Elizabeth and Zechariah, called him John in accordance with an angel’s instruction. In disbelief that they would have a son, Zechariah asked for a sign and was made mute, but with the giving of the name, his speech was restored. Luke records that he responded with the Benedictus, the great hymn of love and thanksgiving still recited in the liturgy of the hours.

Tradition says these two apostles, honoured since the earliest days, were martyred in Rome. Peter, a fisherman, was chosen by Jesus to be his disciple. After Simon confessed that Jesus was the Christ, Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter and told him that it was on this rock (petra) that he would build his Church. Acts records that, after the Ascension, Peter was indeed the “chief of the Apostles”. From the middle of the 3rd century onward, documents show that the bishops of Rome were recognized as the successors of Peter.

Paul was born in Tarsus, a Roman citizen raised and educated as a Pharisee. His experience of the risen Christ resulted in his conversion from a zealous persecutor of Christians to an apostle. In the Acts of the Apostles his friend Luke describes ...
