Family of Murialdo

"Vita Giuseppina" is the magazine of the congregation from 1895

It holds many people together: priests and laity, friends, past pupils, apostolic mothers, benefactors and families.

The story of «Vita Giuseppina» is closely intertwined with that of the other magazine of the congregation, «Lettere Giuseppine». The first to be born was «Lettere Giuseppine», in 1895, as an internal information magazine of the Congregation of San Giuseppe. In 1923, while maintaining the same title, «Lettere Giuseppine» also began to be sent to friends, acquaintances, supporters of Josephan works, giving itself a content suitable for a wider audience.

In 1931 the bulletin changed its name, taking on the title «Vita Giuseppina» and beginning to play a double role, that of a periodical both inside and outside the congregation. From 1931 to 1939 no magazine was printed with the title «Lettere Giuseppine».

In 1940, while the publication of «Vita Giuseppina» continued, that of «Lettere Giuseppine» was also resumed as a periodical intended for the confreres.

Vita Giuseppina stopped publishing in the years 1944-45, due to the war. He reappeared with no. 1-2 of January-February 1946.

This explains why «Vita Giuseppina» can somehow write on its cover (2010) that it is now in its 116th year of existence, tracing its birth to 1895, even if it happened with another title, that of «Letters Giuseppine».
