It says St. Joseph is in the picture. I can’t find him using traditional iconography, so where is he?

He is the figure to the far left. He is clothed in blue with a red tunic. He is holding a closed book in one hand and carries a staff with a lily in the other.

The figure on the left could also be either Moses or Aaron (his rod budded, too)–but I tend to think it’s really St. Benedict: he’s wearing a monastic habit and carrying a book of the Holy Rule.
