The tradition of the St. Joseph’s Table
During a famine in Sicily, when food was scarce and many people were starving, the poor people had only their faith to rely on. St. Joseph was known as the protector of the Holy Family and Italians had strong family relationships, so they prayed for St. Joseph to intercede for them so they could have successful crops. Their prayers were answered, and the famine came to an end. In gratitude, people promised to make annual offerings of their most precious possession — food– in St. Joseph’s honor.
Today, the faithful erect “St Joseph Tables” to honor St. Joseph and feed the poor and hungry in their communities.
