The Anxiety of Saint Joseph

For Catholics, today (March 19) is a special day to remember Saint Joseph.

Last year, I posted two images of this husband of the Blessed Mother created by the 19th century French painter James Tissot. For good measure, below is one more from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

This image is called “L'anxiété de Saint Joseph" or “The Anxiety of Saint Joseph”:

What a great image of Joseph, an industrious dreamer lost in thought... facing the anxiety of all that lies ahead...Thanks for this picture from Tissot!
