I've been experimenting with some of our packaging. I wanted something a little more "cutesy" but something that would work with the labels that Anna designed. I think I've hit on what I want to do for our fancy soap slices. I did a bunch this afternoon and they look sooooooo pretty!!
Saint Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Solemnity
Saint(s) of the day : Bl. Marcel Callo (1921-1945)
Saint José Maria Escriva de Balaguer : Saint Joseph's vocation
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 1,16.18-21.24.
Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the holy Spirit.
Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.
She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
