The Church of Saint Joseph

The Church of Saint Joseph, located in Nazareth, was built over the site which many believe to be Jesus' childhood home. Legend also claims that Joseph's workshop was there, but this is doubted by most historians. This church is modest when compared to the neighboring Church of the Annunciation.






"Hic erat subditus illis." - "Here he became obedient to them."


One last thing... I won't be responding much to your photos and comments. I was viciously attacked by a patch of ice yesterday and will be working under a handicap for the next few weeks. Note, however, the manicure survived.

  34. Sue, Great continuation of your vacation photos session but oh my, your wrist! Have you not heard, you're not supposed to be out on ice? Things go terribly wrong! I can't tell you the number of friends I've heard about in recent years who've hurt themselves falling on ice. It's really dangerous stuff! I wanted to get outside Saturday to photograph the little snow we got but the frigid temperatures kept me inside and the fear of ice on our front steps. Take it easy and I'll say a special prayer for your healing. God bless!
