St. Joseph’s Table, also known as St. Joseph’s Altar, is an ancient tradition originated in Sicily, Italy, centuries ago.  There was a severe drought in Sicily.  No rain fell for an extended period of time. The people were starving. They turned to St.  Joseph.  Rain poured, the famine came to end, and in gratitude for the intercession of St. Joseph, an annual offering of the best crops to share with the poor was promised, thus bore the tradition “Tavola di San Giuseppe,”   or St. Joseph’s Table. Today, the faithful decorate St. Joseph’s Table with      elaborate foods, usually meatless dishes (because St. Joseph’s fast falls on Lent), cakes, shaped breads, cookies, patries, and other  delicacies, beautiful flower arrangements, votive candles, and      different religious images. At the center of the Table is an image of St. Joseph. The Table is blessed by a priest. Various customs are now practiced with St. Joseph’s Table.
