For Catholics, Joseph is the second largest saint after Mary
Joseph is easily overlooked. His words are not included in the Christian Bible. In Islam, the Koran completely omits him, although it does include the names of Jesus and Mary. In fact, it mentions Mary more than the Christian Gospels. Although the Catholic tradition pays the highest respect to the Virgin Mary, it does not pay much attention to the importance of Joseph – there is even a joke that a Sunday school student, after hearing her name, thinks that the name of Jesus’ parents is “Verge ‘n Mary”. However, the Bible depicts that St. Joseph played a crucial role in the life of Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity. In Catholic culture, Joseph is still an important example of father and faith. For Catholics, Joseph is the second largest saint after Mary. Because only she knew, loved and served Jesus better than Joseph. In 1870, Pope Pius IX declared Joseph the patron saint of the entire Catholic Church. Nowadays, marble St Joseph statue is popular with many people. Our marble St Joseph statue is lifelike.

most Christians believe that Joseph is a real father, except physically
Most of the descriptions of Joseph in the Bible come from the so-called baby narratives in Matthew and Luke, which describe the birth and childhood of Jesus. According to the Gospels, Mary, a virgin unmarried with Joseph, conceived Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit – so Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God. However, most Christians believe that Joseph is a real father, except physically, because Joseph is the legitimate father who raised Jesus. In fact, it is incorrect to interpret their “engagement” as a modern “engagement”. Jewish customs in that period included two stages of marriage: first, the legal marriage contract, and then the party where the husband took his wife home. This is reflected in the Gospels: Joseph learned that Mary was pregnant before she lived with him, so he planned to divorce her. But an angel instructed him not to do so, but to take his wife home. Therefore, Joseph was Mary’s lawful husband when Jesus became pregnant. Some Christians believe that Mary and Joseph had several children together after Jesus was born. The Gospels refer to Jesus’ brothers and sisters. However, Catholics and Orthodox Christians believe that these scriptures refer to other relatives rather than actual brothers and sisters. Jesus taught the child that it was his duty to support his parents, but on his deathbed, he entrusted Mary to his apostle John, not to his brothers and sisters… Aongking has more marble St Joseph statues.
