Honoring the Father of Jesus on Father’s Day.
Pope Leo XIII, in 1890 in his Encyclical Quamquam pluries declares “Blessed Joseph…was indeed the husband of Mary and the father, as was supposed, of Jesus Christ. From this arise all his dignity, grace, holiness and glory…[The Church] is his numberless family, scattered throughout all lands, over which he rules with a sort of paternal authority, because he is the husband of Mary and the father of Jesus”.
