The Sword-Bishop says the following about St Joseph: Everything the Church has so far defined, spoken, celebrated about St Joseph is dust compared to his greatness and glory. Joseph was the Guardian of the greatest secret on earth, of the greatest treasure that GOD possessed on earth at the time. He was the man of the house over Mary and JESUS. He was the head of the family according to Jewish law.
The Head of the Holy Family
Why, do you suppose, did GOD place Mary by the side of this man? That people might not see that this Child was not conceived under normal circumstances. If she had been with the Child without a husband, she would have been stoned according to the Jewish custom. Therefore, GOD gave her a husband and this man had to be such that people could assume that he is the father of this Child. Joseph would have to be at an age that matched Mary’s, because Mary was very young and beautiful right down to her fingertips. Everything was pure beauty as GOD had designed it. He would surely not have given her an old man at her side, a grey old man with a tuft of hair. Joseph was not an old man, as he is often depicted, with plane and saw in his hands, looking out into the world. He was a handsome, intelligent and clever human. He was the spitting image of the SAVIOUR.
Joseph Has All the Authority with GOD
Joseph is glorified in Heaven as Father, as Nursing and Foster Father. GOD granted him a position as no other Saint possesses. He is greater than any Saint in his own way, with the exception of Mary. Joseph has received a patronage over everything. He has all the authority with GOD. St Joseph appeared so often, especially in poor convents. He stood there with food, with fruits that were not of this world, nor from Heaven, but from Paradise. Joseph always appears in body, as do JESUS and Mary. So GOD took him up to Heaven body and soul as well, and he is Above with a glorified body. Eventually the Church will understand or grasp it and announce it publicly. Joseph is much greater than we think.
Joseph’s Power of Intercession
You, female beings, you motherly beings, take advantage of Joseph for yourselves; obtain for yourselves this treasure chest, which GOD Himself filled up. In Heaven, Joseph has the same rights as he had in the little house in Nazareth. Yes, he has even more rights because everything done on earth will become greater, more powerful in Heaven. JESUS would like to glorify him, for the very reason that he is still so unknown. Express your wishes to St Joseph. If you have problems with your husbands, take this bridegroom. He can achieve a lot in your marriage. You men, seek him, St Joseph, because marriage is not a private matter – it is a Sacrament; and a Sacrament must be fulfilled as GOD wills it, otherwise it is a sacrilege.
People who struggle with purity should take St Joseph as an ideal example and help. Joseph did not have the slightest impure thought in all his life. Beside Mary, the most purest creature, GOD wanted to have her Spouse to be absolutely pure and holy. The admirable thing about Joseph is: he was a human being like us. He did not have these privileged gifts of grace as the Mother of GOD had.
St Joseph at the Divine Throne
On earth, Joseph, Mary and JESUS were tied together by GOD by a firm bond and remain so forever in Heaven. It cannot be that after death they just separated and that, now, Joseph is somewhere around in Heaven like some or other Saint. No! I quite often see St Joseph together with his Spouse Mary standing at the divine throne of their Son JESUS, sometimes behind the throne slightly to the side or stepping a little forwards. He sometimes whispers to his Son: “Oh, please do grant this request!” and the SAVIOUR looks at him smiling: “You are right, also for you there is not much to be pleased about looking down on the earth. – It is all right, let it be done!”
