Welcome to St. Josephs

Main AltarSt. Joseph Catholic Church is located in an urban setting in downtown, Toledo. Our parishioners are diverse and come from all over the area to enjoy reverent worship of both the Ordinary (Novus Ordo) and Extraordinary (Traditional Latin) forms of the Liturgy. We are proud of our instructional homilies and beautifully adorned church.

Some come to our parish as it reminds them of the traditions of their youth. Others appreciate the sacramental focus and ceremony, bringing their young to build their own memories. All are welcome to join us for the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

 

February 18, 2018 - "Lead us not into Temptation"

“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the Devil”

Today we, like our Lord Jesus Christ, being led by the Spirit, enter the desert.  Our time in the desert, like his, is a time of fasting, a time of prayer, and a time of contention with the temptations of the enemy.

On this Temptation Sunday a number of questions can arise:

  1. Could Jesus really be Tempted?
  2. Why was He tempted?
  3. How are we to understand “He was led by the Spirit … to be tempted”?

As True God there could be nothing inclining Jesus’ heart toward any sin. Thus the temptations, while real temptations, were entirely external temptations - meaning He did not allow them to enter into or to move His most Sacred Heart.
