Icon

Explication

Icono San Jose


In the center of this icon we see St. Joseph in his relationship with Jesus and Mary. 

Icono San Jose

In the frame around the icon we read the second Mission of the Home: “The Defense of the Honor of Our Mother, especially in the privilege of her Virginity”, because he was the first protector of the privilege of her Virginity. That is why he also wears in his halo the three stars of the Virginity of Mary.

In this icon, Mary’s gaze is fixed on St. Joseph—the man that God the Father gave her as her virginal spouse. Their hands are interlaced, expressing their spousal and virginal love. At the same time, St. Joseph’s gaze is also fixed on Mary.

The child Jesus, with complete trust, rests in his arms close to his heart. His little shoeless foot symbolizes his neediness—which St. Joseph cares for. In his crown the Greek letters ‘W’ and ‘N’ mean: “He who is”. Jesus is held close by St. Joseph’s strong arm.

An angel holds an icon of God the Father, because St. Joseph stood in his place as Jesus’ father. We could say that he was the image of the Heavenly Father for Jesus.

In the upper portion of the icon we see three interwoven rings which represent the Trinity; the hand of the Father which blesses and gives the order: “Go to Joseph”; seven cherubim which express the plenitude of graces given to Joseph to fulfill his mission.

In each scene of his life we can admire his deep gaze. His life revolves around Jesus and Mary. Without them, it has no meaning.

St. Joseph is the first of the protector saints of the Home, which is why we see three red roses at his feet, a symbol that is very dear to us.
