On the feast of St. Joseph, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles encouraged Catholics to reflect on the simple, yet powerful characteristics of this holy family man.
"We celebrate St. Joseph today because in his story, we see our story," Archbishop Gomez said during his homily at a March 19 Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
"You and I belong to the great family of God. With St. Joseph, we are part of the family of heroes and saints that extends back to the beginning of time!"
While Pope Francis dedicated this liturgical year to St. Joseph, Gomez emphasized the important role of this saint as the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic.
