St Joseph’s Day

March 14, 2019

19th March is the feast day of St Joseph, patron saint of one of our parish churches.

On this day we offer special prayers to St Joseph.


Prayer to St Joseph, Spouse of the Virgin Mary

St Joseph
Oh, St. Joseph,
whose protection is so strong,
so great, 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 from your Divine Son for me
all spiritual blessings through 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 me.
