From the moment I started to read I could not put the book down. Every time I walked away from it, something would make me turn around and read another chapter. It is compelling, magnificant and inspirational! There was a total peace within me as I read every word. I was able to picture in my mind the every movement of St. Joseph, Mary and child Jesus. This has deepened my faith and trust in God more than any other experience I have ever had!

May be the most important book, outside of The Holy Bible, I've read during my walk with Christ. This true story caused me to shed many tears of contrition, of awe, and also of joy while reading it. Should be required reading for all Christians in my opinion. It's helped me so much in my struggle against sin and against satan's temptations. It's helped me want to strive to become a better husband, a better man, and a better Christian.

This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read about St. Joseph. Mother Maria Cecelia was given these details about St. Joseph from our Lord Himself.
There is one difference in a detail as I understood it in regard to St. Joseph taking Mary into his home right after the espousal's. Even though we are under no obligation to believe all as true in a private revelation...everything in this starting from the conception of St. Joseph, his childhood, his finding his trade in life.. and esp his life with Mary is so inspiring.

It impels one to want to imitate the virtues, esp the humility of this great and holy saint. Even though I have not finished this book yet, I am ready to recommend it to everyone for the impetus toward grace I experience from it.

Format: Paperback
I share some of the same sentiments already expressed by the reviewers here. This book as I see it was a gift of providence in my particular circumstance. I clean/maintain a Church to earn my bread. In preparation for Easter I was cleaning the Saint Joseph statue over the right altar. As I was cleaning I thought to myself how nice it would be to learn more about Saint Joseph. I think the same day I read the section of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich's visions about the Holy Family and it did not contain enough of Saint Joseph to satisfy me. So a few weeks later I find this book left behind in my Church. The first day I read about 90 pages!!! This is how it is!

According to the introductions/forwards the Catholic nun Maria Cecilia Baij was very holy and given the gift of contemplation. Eventually she was notified by Heaven, I think by Saint Joseph himself that she was to write a life of him at the dictation of Jesus. And this is first interesting thing about this book that I would like to mention. Her book is a little different than say the visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich since the focus is more on the inner spiritual life and states of Joseph and Mary and less on the surrounding details, although even the exterior details are enough to make it a truly precious illumination of Divine Revelation which is one of the purposes of true private revelations. The way it is described is that the nun experienced a sort of inner dictation not of the senses with an inner light of what was being described to her. I do not know exactly what this is but I do know that the product is truly prophetic.

So the focus is more on the interior whereas Blessed Anne focuses on pretty much everything in her power with the descriptions of her visions.

I am so blessed to have found this book. My heart races while reading the book. I now understand why I am tormented by Satan as was Joseph. This is definetly divinely inspired by Jesus. Every sentence has so much to give you in your faith and knowledge of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. I am only about 1/3 through the book but I had to share my excitement with you. I have returned to order a book for my sister to read. Do read this book.
