About the Icon

 

Flowing from the Year of St. Joseph declared by Pope Francis, and inspired by his apostolic letter Patris Corde, comes the Knights of Columbus latest Pilgrim Icon.  This beautiful St. Joseph icon is housed at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montréal, Canada’s preeminent Shrine to St. Joseph, founded by St. André Bessette.

 

Elizabeth Bergeron prayerfully painted the original from a drawing by famed iconographer Alexandre Sobolev.  In the image, St. Joseph stands with his eyes cast humbly down, but with a determined strength in his face.  In his covered arm he bears the Child Jesus, whose own hand is raised, blessing the world.  In his right arm, St. Joseph holds a flowering staff, a sign that he was chosen by God.  The white lilies of the staff signify his purity and chastity.

 

Taken together, the icon provides a window into the life and mission of this courageous father, a man who was one of us and yet called to a mission of incomparable significance.
