‘The ideal Christmas gift’

Stunning images from Irish churches of Mary and Joseph’s marriage, and the fascinating story behind them all

Praise for the Book

‘The various stained glass windows and sculptures are beautifully presented, and the commentaries are intellectually informative and emotionally moving. It is a genuine expression of Catholic faith and provides a rich resource for readers to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of both Our Lady and St. Joseph, and their betrothal, as well as the wonderful artistic and theological treasures in so many Irish churches. It also conveys in a powerful manner the beauty of the Church’s understanding of marriage. It would make a lovely present for Catholic engaged couples, or those completing a Marriage preparation course, or those already married.’

Dr John Murray, School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music, Dublin City University


‘An elegant, informed, and edifying work on the betrothal of St. Joseph and the most Blessed Virgin Mary. Eloquently explains the dignity of their marital union while capturing the sublime beauty of sacred artwork that represents that holy union. Spiritually uplifting and visually exquisite, this treasure of a book gives us not only a better understanding of the Holy Family but also a deeper appreciation for the splendour of the sacrament of marriage.’

Br. Daniel Maria Klimek, T.O.R., Theology Department, Franciscan University of Steubenville
