Novena to Saint Joseph

Joseph, just and gentle guardian, God chose you to be the devoted husband of Mary and the foster father of her Son, Jesus. Help us to embrace God’s Will as it is revealed in the depths of our hearts, and in the events of our lives.

You cared for Jesus and Mary with fidelity, integrity, patience, peace and justice. Help us to imitate these virtues each day when we encounter violence, fractured relationships, and the burdens of our lives. Confident of your intercession, we entrust to you our needs and those of the Church and world.

[here mention your requests]

Still our hearts in prayer, that we might experience Christ’s love and peace. May we walk with you in faith, in the company of Jesus and Mary, all the days of our lives.

We ask this through Christ the Lord.

AMEN.
