St. Joseph the (migrant) worker.
Saint Joseph and Immigrants
We recommend immigrants to Saint Joseph. He knows their struggles. He knows their anxieties, their hardships, and the fears. Saint Joseph was, after all, an immigrant in Egypt. He arrived there, in a strange land, with his Virgin Spouse and her Infant Son. He had to find housing, to look for work, to endure the suspicion, the prejudice, and the slights that are the lot of immigrants in every time and place. - Vultus Christi
Fr. Mark has posted beautifully on St. Joseph for his feastday this May 1.
