St. Joseph Icon 3" x 4"
Wooden Plaques With Lumina Gold
Guardian of the Holy Family and Guardian of the Church Universal for centuries, Saint Joseph has been one of the most beloved saints of the Church. In these saint icons, Saint Joseph holds a flowering staff that was the miraculous testimony that signaled God's choice of Saint Joseph as the betrothed of the Blessed Virgin.
Searching for a righteous man with whom they could entrust the youthful Virgin Mary in marriage, the priests of the Temple called all men of the tribe of Judah to bring their staves into the Holy of Holies. The staff of the righteous older man Saint Joseph miraculously budded, as is depicted in our icon of the saint. And so, he was chosen to be the spouse of the Blessed Virgin.
Saint Luke's Gospel describes Saint Joseph's important role in the eternal drama of Christ's birth, the flight into Egypt, and the finding in the Temple. The apocryphal "History of Joseph the Carpenter" records that, at his holy death, he was assisted by Christ and the Blessed Virgin.
More churches in the United States are named after Saint Joseph than any other saint.
Rich colors, golden background, and exquisite details
Our icon prints are made with our exclusive LUMINA GOLD technology, "painted" in a giclée process (rather than the chemical process of photo prints) on 1200-dpi 12-color printers give a broad and rich spectrum of colors and detail and a stunning gold leaf appearance to the backgrounds. The inks are the longest-lasting on the market.
Non-glare satin lamination with a durable, washable surface
The prints are covered with a protective, non-yellowing laminate with a UV filter, with a permanence rating of 300 years under normal conditions. (Note for inside use only, as direct sunlight will cause fading with all photo prints.)
High-quality green-friendly wooden plaques
The prints are mounted on high-density fiberwood sealed on both sides with a high-pressure laminate to protect the image from any deterioration and mounted 3/8" wood. Our wood is formaldehyde-free and 100% green-friend
