Happy Feast Day of St Joseph the Worker

It's May 1st. Put away the may pole and put away your stinking red banners. Today is a day to remember that St Joseph was a carpenter and he taught Christ, Our Lord carpentry.
That's right! Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of all mankind was a working stiff. He redeemed our labor by His labor.
And THAT'S what's great about the Christian faith!
A short history of the feast from's saint of the day page: Started in 1955 by Pope Pius XII as a counter feast to the Communist celebration of labor on the same day. The Church has always pointed that Christ worked as a carpenter in order to show His human nature.

Btw, happy feast day to Wilsey, Kalange and everyone else named Joseph.
