“I wish I could persuade everyone to be devoted to this glorious saint ... For some years now, I think, I have made some request of him every year on his festival and I have always had it granted. If my petition is in any way ill-directed, he directs it aright for my greater good.”

—St. Teresa of Avila, writing about St. Joseph in her autobiography. St. Joseph's feast day is today, March 19.

Earth Day is April 22.
