By Michel Gasnier, O.P.
The Gospels tell us almost nothing about St. Joseph, yet his life is full of spiritual treasures. Michel Gasnier O.P. in his book Joseph The Silent shows you where to find them and how they can enrich your own relationship with God. In this series of brief meditations he explores St. Joseph’s work as a carpenter, his marriage, his character, the flight into Egypt, his return to Nazareth, Simeon’s prophecy, and more. He gives you an enlightening portrait of this man who remains one of the Church’s most extraordinary saints and intercessors.
Michel Gasnier was ordained as a Dominican priest, carrying out his ministry in Paris for some 25 years. He was then appointed Director of the Dominican retreat house adjoining the famous monastery of Le Saulchoir. A scriptural scholar, he produced over twenty books on biblical and theological subjects. Père Gasnier died on 1 July 1964.
