    One thought on “The Life and Glories of St. Joseph”

    1. Wonderful, thorough account of this most excellent saint, drawing greatly on the Church Fathers but also on some of the great scholastics and humanists. If you want to know Joseph this is the greatest source I've found.

    2. Among the classics of Catholic literature, The Life and Glories of Saint Joseph is a book to be consumed, savored and meditated on. Do not attempt large bites rather enjoy each morsel one paragraph, even one sentence at a time.This book, written in 1888 by Edward Healy Thompson, M.A is based on the earlier work of theologian Canon Antonio Vitali, Father Jose Moreno and others. They in turn cite the works and opinions of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint John Chrysostom, Saint Bonaventure, Saint August [...]

    3. Very good! A little repetitive but not obnoxiously so. The middle chapters on the life of St. Joseph were by far the most interesting to me it dragged a little at the beginning and end (more so the end). I learned A LOT in this book- St. Joseph is not spoken enough about!! It's amazing all the things the doctors of the Church have said about him. I definitely have an even greater respect for him after reading this and would recommend it to anyone!

    4. This was a wonderful book, I learned SO much of St. Joseph, his life and death, his heart, his piety and humility, his devotion to Our Lord and the Blessed Virgin, his holiness, his work, his ministry while on earth and in Heaven, his place in my life, etc.
