Pope Francis' patience with Saint Joseph

With delight I read an article from Vatican Insider titled, "Those little prayers Francis slips under his St. Joseph statue," which describes a devotion to the foster father of Jesus the Holy Father has maintained for many decades.

Speaking to someone who works in the Holy See after his election to the See of Peter, Pope Francis said of his devotion to Saint Joseph:
You know, you have to be patient with these carpenters: they tell you they’ll have a piece of furniture finished in a couple of weeks and it ends up taking a month even. But they get the job done and they do it well! You just need to be patient…
 I wish that we could see more of the humor and devotion to the Saints with which Pope Francis lives
