Saint Joseph

This image of St Joseph, posted for his feast day today, is from the reredos in the Cathedral's Lady Chapel. He is seen kneeling in adoration of the new-born Christ, pausing in contemplation and with his hands joined in prayer. The image presents to us something of the figure of St Joseph as he appears in St Matthew's gospel - one who hears and faithfully follows the Word of God.
