DYING: JOSEPH

 FIRST CENTURY, B.C.       FEAST DAY: MARCH 19

 Joseph was the carpenter who served as Christ’s father on Earth. He never shirked his duties as the head of his family and stood by Mary, guarding her from ridicule and respecting her virgin state. It is thought that Joseph died well before Christ was crucified, hence he never had to suffer over the fate of his son. For this reason, he is invoked for a happy death.
