Homily by Archbishop Anton Stres on Slomšek Sunday 2021

Blessed Slomšek emphasized Joseph's test of faith and trust, setting him as an example. In addition, Slomšek often mentioned his righteousness. Joseph's third virtue, however, is diligence to provide the Child of God with security and the necessary physical and mental development. Thus, for Slomšek, the example of St. Joseph was often the starting point for many spiritual thoughts and moral instructions.
