An Extra Special St. Joseph's Day: I Just Hit "PUBLISH"
The Feast of St. Joseph has always carried great significance for me. But even more so in recent years. Two years ago it was on March 19th that I finished my last in-person day at school before being sent home. A ridiculous 3.5 month lockdown ensued, followed by another 20.5 months of insanity.
That is, the past two years have been a roller coaster for us. For all of us. I'm not sure how much more my stomach can handle. Nevertheless, St. Joseph has been key to our family's sanity and wellbeing.
Now it would take nearly a book-length post to describe what has led up to this year's St. Joseph's day post, but, speaking of books, I will state the obvious:
Today I have just clicked "PUBLISH" at Amazon on my book, Disconnected: The Broken Path.
NB: Amazon will take up to 72hours to review things, so my book will technically go live on March 22nd.
It doesn't seem like much, but writing this book has been a journey filled with great risk and uncertainty. It might be a dud, or a best-seller, or, perhaps most likely, something in between. It doesn't matter. I stand by it, and I am proud of it. But I must mention one thing: Behind the scenes, it was St. Joseph who made this book possible. And if there is any success with it, all the more will it be due to the intercession of the great patron of Workers, of Families, of Canada, of the Church, and of me personally.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
