PODCAST | St. Joseph: Guardian of the Redeemer

[ Podcast Transcript ]


In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan reflects on three key themes from Guardian of the Redeemer, an Apostolic exhortation on St. Joseph in the life of Christ and in the Church written by St. John Paul II. The key themes—obedience of faith, work as an expression of love, and the primacy of the interior life—help us meditate on “the one into whose custody God entrusted his most precious treasures,” particularly as we near the close of the Year of St. Joseph on December 8.

Msgr. Dolan explains: “The goal is not only for us to turn to Joseph with greater fervor and to invoke his patronage with trust but also to keep before our eyes his humble, mature way of serving and of taking in the plan of salvation. The stated goal helps us tremendously to focus on the fact that each of us has as our main mission to continue the work of redemption.”
