In her autobiography, Saint Teresa of Avila wrote of Saint Joseph: "Would that I could persuade all men to be devoted to this glorious Saint, for I know by long experience what blessings he can obtain for us from God. I have never known anyone who was truly devoted to him and honored him by particular services who did not advance greatly in virtue: for he helps in a special way those souls who commend themselves to him. It is now very many years since I began asking him for something on his feast, and I have always received it. If the petition was in any way amiss, he rectified it for my greater good…I ask for the love of God that he who does not believe me will make the trial for himself – then he will find out by experience the great good that results from commending oneself to this glorious Patriarch and in being devoted to him.” Who was and is this special man that the Blessed Virgin Mary called her beloved husband and our Lord His loving father?

Pope Pius XI wrote in Miserentissimus redemptor, speaking of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, “For is not the sum of all religion and therefore the pattern of more perfect life, contained in that most auspicious sign and in the form of piety that follows from it inasmuch as it more readily leads the minds of men to an intimate knowledge of Christ Our Lord, and more efficaciously moves their hearts to love Him more vehemently and to imitate Him more closely?” But why is the Sacred Heart of Jesus the sum of all religion? And how does it move us to knowledge and love of God moreso than any other devotion? Why is it, therefore, referred to by countless popes as the "devotion of all devotions"?
