Patron of the Unborn

St. Joseph, who protected the unborn child Jesus in Mary’s womb during the trip to Bethlehem and the birth in the stable, and who saved the newborn Savior from Herod’s murderous threats, is the fitting Patron of the Unborn. He is shown with a six month old fetus in his hands, tenderly offering him to Christ, the Light of the World. The larger than lifesize statue is a source of healing to parents who seek healing for the loss of an unborn child due to miscarriage or abortion.
