St. Joseph’s Model of Faith

The Litany of Saint Joseph is a powerful prayer that leads us to consider the many ways in which Joseph carried out the will of God. After all, he alone was called to be the father to the Son of God and his example shows all of us how to respond to our vocation as a disciple of the Lord. As we continue this Year of St Joseph we talk with Leonard DeLorezno

Leonard J. DeLorenzo teaches theology at the University of Notre Dame, where he directs Undergraduate Studies for the McGrath Institute for Church Life. He’s the author of several books, most recently Model of Faith: Reflecting on the Litany of Saint Joseph as well as  “What Matters Most: Empowering Young Catholics for Life’s Big Decisions,” “Witness: Learning to Tell the Stories of Grace that Illumine Our Lives,” and “Work of Love.”
