Previous reports: None
Saint of the day: The story of Joseph is full of fabulous legends. Early mystery plays, attempting to explain the perpetual viginity of his wife Mary, often show him as a drunken old fool but by the Sixteenth Century the Roman Catholic church had stopped this sort of thing. They were unable to suppress the story of his flowering rod however. The suitors competing for the hand of the young Mary were all given a wooden rod. Joseph's miraculously bloomed, the others remained inert. In our post-Freudian world, this tale is worth a moment's thought. Careful now.
