The Church of St. Joseph is one of the few dedicated to the father of Jesus, as the majority of churches are dedicated to either the Holy Family or to Mary, his mother.

The under ground cave that was home to the young child Jesus helped me visualize their every day life. It was incredible!! St.Joseph, pray... 更多
