Dear Parents, Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, The Year of St. Joseph, declared by the Church, will be concluded on December 8th, the day of the Feast of Immaculate Conception. The sleeping picture of St. Joseph has been circulating recently. It was during his sleep the angles enlightened him about the child Mother Mary was carrying. Pope Francis explains the significance of the image, “I have a great love for St. Joseph because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table, I have an image of St. Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church! Yes! We know that he can do that. So, when I have a problem, a difficulty, I write a little note and I put it underneath St. Joseph, so that he can dream about it! In other words, I tell him: “Pray for this problem!” (Apostolic Journey to the Philippines, 2015).

Let us continue to strictly follow all COVID guidelines – Please wear mask all times and keep distance.

May the Good Lord Bless and Protect All of You
