Cross Stitch Pattern
Joseph is the third figure in this series. Joseph looks to the Christ Child and Mary,
and completes the Holy family.
I saw a beautifully crafted card in 2006 with just Mary and the baby Jesus representing the family, and was surprised that
Joseph was not included. Wise men, shepherds, angel and a star were there, but no Joseph? To me, this was
just not right. It was Joseph that protected and guided this small family and his love of God and his
family carried him through challenges he faced. He is important in the creche.
