He is the patron saint of our city, our family, and our youngest son. We look forward to Saint Joseph's feast day every year! This morning we were fortunate to drive out to the new convent in Gower, MO, for early mass with the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles. Fr. Matthew Barticula said the Tridentine mass, so there were many firsts for us! Lovely singing by the nuns with a gentle breeze coming in the windows and the chirpring of the birds in the background.
