Happy Feast of St. Joseph


Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so prompt, so strong 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 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 departed souls - pray for me.
Amen.

Margaret Mary, is that statue in your home? It looks just like one my friend gave me. I love it.

Yes, this is our statue. I got it about 35 years ago from a convent that had it in a closet and offered it to me. It was the time when statues were being removed in many places...but it also may have been in the closet because it needed some repair (still does, but we love it all the same).
