On December 8, 2020, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Pope Francis presented a new apostolic letter entitled: Patris corde (With the heart of a father). In it, he recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. He recommends Saint Joseph as a special role model for Catholics and as a guide in these troubled times. The Pope praises the saint, like so many silent and unknown heroes in this corona pandemic, as a role model of creative courage and modesty, obedience, tenderness, and responsibility. This year, through December 8, 2021, will be dedicate to St. Joseph. We have created this banner to celebrate this occasion.
