Recipes for March ~ Month Dedicated to St. Joseph

The Month of March is dedicated to St. Joseph, the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the foster father of Jesus.

"The silence of Saint Joseph is given a special emphasis. His silence is steeped in contemplation of the mystery of God in an attitude of total availability to divine desires. It is a silence thanks to which Joseph, in unison with Mary, watches over the Word of God, known through the Sacred Scriptures, continuously comparing it with the events of the life of Jesus; a silence woven of constant prayer, a prayer of blessing of the Lord, of the adoration of His holy will and of unreserved entrustment to his providence. It is no exaggeration to think that it was precisely from his "father" Joseph that Jesus learned -- at the human level -- that steadfast interiority which is a presupposition of authentic justice.... Let us allow ourselves to be "filled" with Saint Joseph's silence! In a world that is often too noisy, that encourages neither recollection nor listening to God's voice."   ~ Pope Benedict XVI, Angelus, December 18, 2005

  2. Hello ladies!
    I am a huge fan of Catholic Cuisine! I wanted to suggest a Feast day for next year that would make a great post in March. It's the Feast of St. Katharine Drexel on March 3. St. Katharine is the second American-born Saint who ministered to the Africian and Native American people. She is also the founder of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and Xavier University in New Orleans. Our family had a cajun meal in honor of her last night. I'd love to see Catholic Cuisine mention this great saint and include Creole/Cajun inspired meals or Native American foods.
