On March 22nd the church celebrates the feast day of Blessed Maria Repetto, an Italian nun with a great devotion to St Joseph. Maria was beatified by Blessed Pope John Paul II in 1991. In recent years the numbers of those being declared blessed, or being canonised, who had great devotion to St Joseph has been notable (eg St Andre Bessette, St Mary of the Cross McKillop, Blessed Isidore of St Joseph, to name a few). Maria and her holy contemporaries are living proof of St Teresa of Avila’s words. God Bless!
