Although today in the USA (hey, that rhymes) Father’s Day is celebrated. In Italy however, it is celebrated on March 19th. March 19 is also to honor St. Joseph. St. Joseph is the patron saint of the Universal Church. It is said in the Gospels that he went on to wed the Virgin Mary, and it states he is the corporeal Father of Jesus Christ. St. Joseph believed in grace at the moment of death; he is said to be the patron of a happy death.
The words are:
Festa del Papà: Father’s Day.
Buona Festa del Papà: Happy Father’s Day.
