A beautiful relief sculpture adorns the narthex of the Chapel. The scene depicted is of St. Joseph working with the Child Jesus attentively watching.

The whole Church recognizes St Joseph as a patron and guardian. For centuries many different features of his life have caught the attention of believers. He was a man ever faithful to the mission God gave him. That is why, for many years now, I have liked to address him affectionately as "our father and lord."

Homily of St. Josemaria Escriva, "In Joseph's Workshop."
