A saint is a person regarded by the public as having special virtues and holiness. Some religions canonize saints through certain rituals, but some saints are directly respected as saints by the public. For example, some religious founders or clergy. There are many saints in Christian religions (including the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, and the Eastern Orthodox Church). Some members of the New Age movement also incorporated the concept of the sage into their beliefs.
One of the most famous sculptures of Jesus and other saints is the Holy Family. Mary and Joseph were both saints. The Holy Family consists of the Baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and St. Joseph. The subject became popular in art from the 1490s, but the cult of the bronze Holy Family sculpture was officially begun in the 17th century by Saint Francois de Laval, the first bishop of New France, who founded a brotherhood. Holy Family Day is a liturgical celebration in the Catholic Church as well as in many Lutheran and Anglican churches that honor Jesus, his mother, and his adoptive father St. Joseph as a family. It has been observed since Pope Benedict XV inserted it in 1921. The main purpose of the festival is to present the Holy Family as an example of the Christian family. There are many churches dedicated to the Holy family. In the years leading up to Jesus’ public ministry, the Gospels made little mention of the life of the holy family.
