Happy feast of St. Joseph!

St Joseph is a great but often overlooked saint. He's especially invoked for help with financial matters, since he was the provider for the holy family. He's a patron for people looking for work and all workers, for the dying, for fathers, and in general the saint of divine providence.

Here's an interesting article from a secular journal about St Joseph and selling homes.
