A Solid Bronze Figure
This statuette of Saint Joseph with the child Jesus stands 3.2 inches high. This piece was conceived and cast in bronze in a monastic workshop and foundry in Germany.
At Mary’s side in the Holy Family of Nazareth stands the figure of Saint Joseph. Through his work and generous presence, he cared for and defended Mary and Jesus, delivering them from the violence of the unjust by bringing them to Egypt. The Gospel presents Joseph as a just man, hard-working and strong. But he also shows great tenderness, which is not a mark of the weak but of those who are genuinely strong, fully aware of reality and ready to love and serve in humility. That is why he was proclaimed custodian of the universal Church. He too can teach us how to show care; he can inspire us to work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us.
-Pope Francis, Laudato si, 2015
The Patron Saint of Blue Collar Workers
Jesus was the “Son of David” because Joseph was of Davidic lineage (Matthew 1:1-17). Joseph, the “artisan, craftsman or carpenter” (tekton in Greek–Matthew 13:55), is depicted in this solid bronze plaque standing behind and imparting a paternal blessing on the Christ Child. Saint Joseph is, in fact, the original “blue collar worker.” In fact, St. Joseph is now the official patron saint of workers. On May 1st we celebrate the feast day of “St. Joseph the Worker.” This solid bronze figurine will be a meaningful gift for that worker in your life, be he father, husband son, or union member.
