St. Joseph - March 19

  In him the Old Testament finds its fitting close. He brought the noble line of patriarchs and prophets to its promised fulfillment. What the divine goodness had offered as a promise to them, he held in his arms.  - from a homily of St. Bernardine of Siena. 

Some images for you, first a vintage holy card from the Shrine of St. Joseph in Montreal that interests me because it predates the construction of the large basilica:


From the Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal.  
I just love the blues on the card above and the not-quite Art-Noveauishness of it.



At the shrine featured in the vintage holy cards.  Summer 2011. 
The sign says "Reserved for pilgrims climbing on their knees."
