Patris Corde: Apostolic Letter of the Holy Father Francis on the 150th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church by Pope Francis

Pope Francis gives a very personal reflection on the importance of St Joseph as the husband of Mary, the foster father of Our Saviour and protector of the Church. Announcing a year dedicated to St Joseph the Holy Father presents St Joseph as an example of the type of tender, loving and courageous father so sorely needed in the world and in the Church. In St Joseph we find a sure intercessor in the most difficult moments and impossible situations.

“We need only ask Saint Joseph for the grace of graces: our conversion.”

This volume includes the decree from the Apostolic Penitentiary detailing the conditions for the Special Indulgence available during the Jubilee Year in Honour of St Joseph.
