Happy St. Joseph's Day!

If you're going to refrain from abstaining from meat today, don't do it just because you can, but actually celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. And make it a family affair. With St. Joseph as a model for all fathers to emulate, today represents a special opportunity for fathers to reinforce their domestic churches. Particularly so, given the unique cause of the dispensation with St. Joseph's being the only solemnity to occur during Lent.

CatholicCulture.org has some great resources on prayers, activities, and recipes for marking the day. For my part, I am picking up a novena of consecration to the Devoted Heart of Joseph and taking The Clan out to dinner.

Update:

There is some confusion out there with a prominent Catholic politician saying incorrectly that today is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, which occurs on May 1st. Nancy Pelosi ought to have know better than this, which will probably be the most evil statement I will hear today.

Update 2:

Check out Catholic Dads for an expanded version of the initial post.
