The statue evokes the humility of Saint Joseph, who slightly bows his head as a sign of respect for his Son.
It should be noted that Pope Francis feels a deep devotion to Saint Joseph. Following his election to the See of Peter on March 13, 2013, he chose to celebrate the inauguration of his Petrine ministry on the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, whom he gave as an example of someone capable of “walking in the darkness,” an expert “in listening.” the voice of God” and to “move forward in silence.”
At the end of this brief meeting, the Holy Father went to the Faro Palace to attend the closing session of the Mediterranean Meetings.
