O LIVRO DE JOSÉ


Utilizando-se das palavras de papas, santos e místicos aprovados, “O Livro de José” tem por objetivo derrubar a crença comum a muitos de que nada se sabe a respeito deste santo além do que é brevemente mencionado na Bíblia.
 
 
Esta obra, à qual foi concedida o Imprimatur, apresenta a vida de São José a começar com as orações ardentes de seus pais a fim de conceberem um filho, passando a narrar então seu nascimento e infância, assédios do diabo, seu casamento com a Bem-aventurada Virgem Maria, o nascimento de Cristo e a convivência com Ele e as circunstâncias de sua morte e glorificação no Céu. Além da teoria que trata da assunção de São José, também se discute sua santificação no ventre materno e sua virgindade perpétua. 
 
O livro conclui com uma série de orações, devoções, aparições, relíquias, obras de arte e muito mais.

THE BOOK OF JOSEPH



⚜ THE BOOK OF JOSEPH ⚜

Reviews and Info here: https://bookofjoseph2017.wixsite.com/saintjoseph/st-joseph-messages-of-the-heart

St. Joseph is the reflection of God the Father, Guardian of God the Son, Friend of God the Holy Spirit, and Spouse of the Immaculate Handmaiden. In his youth, he prayed for the coming of the promised Messiah. In his adult life, not only were his prayers answered, but he loved and upheld the Messiah, Jesus Christ. And now, in the Court of Heaven, St. Joseph intercedes for the Church before the throne of Christ. Using the words of Popes, Saints, and approved mystics, The Book of Joseph, aims to dispel the common belief held by many that nothing is known about the saint other than what is mentioned briefly in the Bible. This work, which has been granted the Imprimatur, presents the life of St. Joseph beginning with the faithful prayers of his parents to conceive a son to his birth and childhood, harassment by the devil, his marriage to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the birth and life with Christ, through to the circumstances of his death and his glorification in Heaven. In addition to the theory of the assumption of St. Joseph, his sanctification in the womb and perpetual virginity are discussed.

The book concludes with a series of prayers including the Holy Cloak devotion, the Litany of St. Joseph, chaplet, praises, and supplications. There are also sections on St. Joseph in scripture, feast days, relics, approved St. Joseph apparitions, quotes of the Popes and Saints, as well as 30 image pages.
