The Venerable de la Salle placed his institution under the patronage of Saint Joseph, and daily recited the litanies of the Saint, recommending his brethren to do so likewise, in order that Saint Joseph's tender care of the Infant Jesus might serve as a model to them in bringing up the children entrusted to their care. The Saint proved how dear the Venerable Father was to his heart ; when he fell sick, his strength returned on the eve of Saint Joseph's Day, and he was able to say Mass, his last, on the morning of the Feast His health appeared to have been given back but for that purpose, for he soon experienced a relapse, and, in a few days, fell asleep in the Lord.
