St. John Paul II affirmed that St. Joseph is the one to whom God "entrusted the custody of his most precious treasures." For us, he is a model of total and unlimited dedication to the Lord.
"Love Saint Joseph a lot. Love him with all your soul, because he, together with Jesus, is the person who has most loved our Blessed Lady and been closest to God. He is the person who has most loved God, after our Mother. He deserves your affection, and it will do you good to get to know him, because he is the Master of the interior life, and has great power before the Lord and before the Mother of God" (St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer).
My name is Sr. Patricia Maria of the Crucified Love and I am a Servant Sister of the Home of the Mother.
I lived a life full of adventure: zip lines, kayaking, climbing, horse riding... I was a camp leader and I was living my dream. I had "everything," until one day Our Lady surprised me by coming as a "camper" where I worked. She made my life change completely.
I left those worldly adventures behind for a more exciting one: living for God and my Mother, the Virgin Mary. I have thrown myself into this adventure with no turning back, and now my life is a zip line in which someone is waiting for me on the other side: Jesus.
