Commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Pope John Paul II's apostolic exhortation Guardian of the Redeemer with this expanded edition that offers a rich commentary and invites us to reflect on Saint Joseph as a model of faith. 

Given on the feast of the Assumption, August 15, 1989, this apostolic exhortation focuses on the way Saint "Joseph, like Mary, remained faithful to God's call until the end." Pope John Paul II encourages us to consider the ways that Saint Joseph lived his faith day to day.

This 25th anniversary edition provides the complete text of the apostolic exhortation, accompanied by a commentary by Joseph Atkinson that makes Pope John Paul II's language more accessible. In six parts, readers are given a fuller understanding of Saint Joseph as guardian, husband, carpenter, and patron.

References to various religious documents and Biblical passages provide rich context for highlighting Saint Joseph's role in Christ's life and as patron of the Church today. Joseph Atkinson's commentary helps readers to understand the exhortation, and offers reflection questions and a prayer after each section. Reading the exhortation becomes a way to fully recognize and appreciate Saint Joseph's role in salvation history.

In this special Anniversary Edition, we can delve more deeply into our comprehension of the guardian of the Redeemer, husband of Mary, and patron of the Universal Church.
