Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Josephology: Father of all Joseph books! 

Sweet! My library just notified me that they've got my interlibrary loan request in -- I'm so totally psyched!

It's for Bibliographie sur saint Joseph et la sainte Famille, THE be-all, end-all Josephological resource out there. Just check out this description:

"This monumental (1365 pages, with 19,725 entries) and multilingual (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, etc.) bibliography is the single most important source of information about publications of all kinds (ecclesiastical, theological, devotional, artistic, etc.) on St. Joseph and the Holy Family. ... Use of Bibliographie sur Saint Joseph et la saint Famille is facilitated by thorough thematic and chronological indices. There is an additional chronological index of contributions by eighty-eight religious orders." Read full description.


I'd seen this book mentioned in Fr. Filas' bibliography for Joseph: The Man Closest to Jesus: The Complete Life, Theology and Devotional History of St. Joseph and am thrilled I can read it for myself. God bless the public library system!
