Dear Reader, have you ever visited San Francesco, St. Louis, San Miguel, or San Diego? How about Saint Petersburg, Santa Clara, Santa Barbara, St. Augustine, San Bernadino, St. Paul, San Juan, or San Ysidro? Anyway, each and every city named as such is to honor a particular good practicing Catholic who lived on Earth. Note: Please, ssshhh! Do not tell anyone that I reminded you of this fact because some atheist will sue, and then, some dopey-judge will make a law, which will direct that we cannot name cities after Catholics. He or she will rule that it is unconstitutional.
Anyway, Dear Reader, the city of San Jose is named after a very good and just man, St. Joseph. He is the holy husband of Mary, Our Mother of God! On Earth, Twelve-year-old Jesus was obedient to him, especially after he and Mary search for three days and found Him in the Holy Temple of Jerusalem. Joseph was the first Catholic father. The ambience of his home radiated the Love of Jesus and Mary, throughout!
Joseph and Mary are of True-Blue Royal Blood. When Jesus was born on Earth, He was the rightful Heir to the Throne of David. This is why heroic-less herod, the pretender-king, sent out his henchmen to murder the many innocent babies of the nearby towns and villages. He was trying to assassinate the rightful Royal King of God’s chosen people! Through faith and reason, the three Wise Men came from afar and sought out this Royal King. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the holy city of David, they could be seen bowing low offering adoration.
Anyhow, when one enters a good traditional Catholic church, he or she sees the Holy Throne of Jesus at the front and center of His Catholic Castle, an Image of San Jose to the right of the Holy Altar and Our Mother to the left of the Holy Altar. From My King’s vantage point, the Queen stands at Your Right-Side arrayed in gold.
Dear Reader, Why do we not find this Supernatural Prefiguement in some of the new modern Roman Catholic churches? Is it because someone complained, and so, now we need our Holy Catholic Temples to be corrupted like protestant-venues? On the other hand, could some wayward bishop or priest have taken it upon himself to nefariously alter the Holy Altar of Sacred Tradition?
The Great “Tryptique” of our Catholic Faith, Dear Reader, consists of three truly authentic realities. First, is Christ our King! Jesus is adored and worship in the Most Blessed Sacrament in the angelic life of prayer and devotion from the Holy Angels & Saints, the Church Triumphant, and all of us, the Church Militant, continuously directed toward the Most Blessed Trinity! These attributes of the first frame of the Tryptique, so to speak, are preparation in order to conquer our unworthiness to enter the Kingdom of God. The Church Sorrowful, the holy souls in Purgatory, is counting on us!
The second frame of the Great Tryptique inspires the Threefold Catholic Church to show and share devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Blessed Mother is, without compromise, necessary for all of us to enter the Kingdom of God. Dear Reader, begin now, on Earth, and then, maybe, our time in Holy Purgatory will be shorten. All of the souls in Purgatory, without exception, are fervently devoted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! She, Our Blessed Mother, is the first consecrated soul, after Our Lord Jesus, to exist in the Kingdom of God! In fact, she reigns as the Queen! Ad Jesum per Mariam!
Finally, San Jose knows Mary, the Mother of God, Queen of the Angels, and Queen of the Saints better than any human creature, ever! He is the greatest admirer of Mary. Dear Reader, I echo, St. Joseph is the Royal Prime Minister to the knowledge and love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! He is the third frame of the Catholic Tryptique. Every piece of wood that he sawed, every nail that he hammered, and every piece of furniture and structure that he constructed, was for the Glory of God! Viva Cristo Rey! Everything and everybody are for the Glory of God!
In many of our magnificent Catholic Churches, great and small, we are able to discern clearly the Image of St. Joseph with his callous hands embracing the Little Child Jesus in his powerful and sturdy arms. A lily flower beholds his purity and his righteousness. Each holy Catholic bishop and priest mirrors San Jose; they are manly and have no duplicity. By means of Holy Faith and Reason, every good Catholic bishop and priest understands his duty, he seeks assistance from his two guardian angels, and he is devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
“O, my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child, take care of my salvation, watch over me day and night, preserve me from the occasion of sin, obtain for me purity of soul and body! Through thy intercession with Jesus, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, of humility and self-denial, a burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a sweet tender love for Mary, my Mother. St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgment from Jesus, my Merciful Savior. Amen”
O San Jose, I consecrate myself to your loving heart!
Guardian Angels of God, light and guard; rule and guide!
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! My Jesus Mercy!
