Prayer to St. Joseph … 31-Mar-2019
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
On March 19th we celebrated the Feast of St. Joseph. He is the patron Saint of the Universal Church and of our Diocese. The saying under the statue of St. Joseph in our Church translates “go to Joseph.” It is important that all of us seek his guidance. Especially men should follow his example of being a faithful husband and a good father.
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls – Pray for us. Amen
May Jesus, Mary and Joseph guide our steps and lead us toward Divine Love!
