An Act of Prayer for Saint Joseph

Women devotees prepare altars for weeks leading up to the La Festa di San Giuseppe or Saint Joseph’s Day. The breads that they create, most of which are not meant to be eaten, are artistically shaped into wreaths, lilies, daisies, fava beans in their pods, fish, butterflies, doves, chalices, hearts, hands, and carpentry tools such as ladders, hammers, and pliers, and most importantly, symbols of fatherhood, such as beards and flowering staffs.
