Pope Francis Entrusts Educators to St. Joseph’s Protection

“Let us look at Joseph as the model for educators, for he guards and accompanies Jesus in his journey of growth ‘in wisdom, age, and grace,’” said Pope Francis today, according to the Catholic News Agency (CNA).

On this Solemnity of Saint Joseph, the Holy Father entrusted “all those who have an educating role in the Church and in society” to St. Joseph’s protection.

CNA reports:

Pope Francis noted that in raising Jesus, St. Joseph also taught him his trade of carpentry.

Continuing on to the second dimension of education, that of wisdom, Pope Francis called St. Joseph Christ’s “example and teacher of the wisdom, which is nourished by the Word of God.”

“We can consider how Joseph taught the young Jesus to listen to the Holy Scriptures, especially accompanying him on the sabbath to the synagogue of Nazareth.”
