Saint Joseph in the Life of Christ and of the Church, Apostolic Exhortation Redemptoris Custos
Nicola Mansfield's review
Feb 04, 2017
I've read encyclicals or exhortations from several popes, and JPII is an excellent writer. He talks what can be complicated theology and reduces it to easy to understand layman's terms in an easy to read format.His words ring true and just. This exhortation from 1989 is on St Joseph (Jesus' earthly father).Joseph isn't mentioned much in the Bible, but the pope here takes all those scriptures that do and expounds on why Joseph is as important as Mary at being a parent of Jesus, what he did for Jesus while alive, and what he does for us now. He is the patron saint of the Church today. A keeper for my Catholic reading shelf!
