St. Joseph Novena: March 11-19


Special Intentions for this year’s Novena: 

  1.  Please pray for the Ukrainian people who’s nation has been unjustly attacked by Russian forces, that there will be a just and peaceful end quickly to the war which is claiming so many innocent lives!
  2. For Putin and the leaders of Russia to be converted, lay down their weapons and turn to the Lord for forgiveness.
  3. For the Leaders of nations to step up and help protect and defend the nation of Ukraine as they promised!

“I wish I could persuade everyone to be devoted to this glorious Saint, for I have great experience of the blessings which he can obtain from God.  I have never known anyone to be truly devoted to him and render him particular services who did not notably advance in virtue, for he gives very real help to souls who commend themselves to him.  For some years now, I think, I have made some request of him every year on his festival and I have always had it granted.  If my petition is in any way ill directed, he directs it aright for my greater good.”  Our Holy Mother St. Teresa of Jesus

PRAYER FOR THE MASS OF ST. JOSEPH, SPOUSE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY, MARCH 19:

Grant, we pray, Almighty God, that by St. Joseph’s intercession Your Church may constantly watch over the unfolding of the mysteries of human salvation, whose beginnings You entrusted to his faithful care.  Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,  God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
