The penitential season of Lent is well underway. A highlight in our Lenten journey is the March 19 Feast of St. Joseph. Each year, we prepare a small Altar in our dining room. Today, I stole my son’s school table for our Altar, which consists of an upright piano and the school table. Set up has begun.
As with any tradition, our St. Joseph Altar has evolved and gathered life from each member of our family. Everyone gets involved by preparing something for the Altar. Audrey is planning on making a cake. Ida usually makes cookies. The others are still deciding. I’m happy about the feast day falling on a Saturday this year. No conflicts with homeschool, co-op, or dance classes.
St. Joseph is our good friend. He has answered our prayers many times and we are confident that he will continue to do so. Viva San Giuseppe!
