St. Joseph Comments

Everything we know about the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus comes from Scripture and that has seemed too little for those who made up legends about him. We know he was a carpenter, a working man, for the skeptical Nazarenes ask about Jesus, "Is this not the carpenter's son?" (Matthew 13:55). He wasn't rich for when he took Jesus to the Temple to be circumcised and Mary to be purified he offered the sacrifice of two ... Continue Reading

    Blessed be St. Joseph, Her Most Chaste Spouse!

    Oh! Loving father, I thank you, for all you have done for me. May you be honored in all countries and in every heart!

    Help me, oh dear father and friend, to get the job, home and life-partner, I have long asked you for. I believe strongly that if only thou would ask Jesus on my behalf, he would grant them immediately! This I know; ask then; ask on my behalf, oh loving friend!!

    "Te, Joseph, celebrent agmina caelitum..." Amen.

    Dearest St. Joseph,
    Thank you for honoring me with your presence in my home. I am glad that you decided to reside here with me via the statue I recently purchased of you and The Infant Jesus. I already feel a deep love for you and I can definitely feel your strong, paternal spirit. You are the Patron of the Universal Church, and I can see why.

    Tonight, I felt the urge to say the Catholic Grace before dinner for the first time in YEARS and I couldn't figure out why I just said it without consciously thinking about it, until I looked at your statue newly ensconced in a place of honor in my home. Thank you so much for your blessings and protection of me and my home and for being a wonderful father figure to me. I think you are the Saint who can help me increase my faith and be a better Catholic than I have been in recent years. Again, thank you.
    Love,
    Kristin

    Dear St Joseph, thank you for praying for my healing of the bleeding from my nostrils. Thank you Lord Jesus for answering my petitions through the prayers of St Joseph too.

    O 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.
    O 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.
    O 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 departing souls,
    pray for us.
    Amen

    Dear St. Joseph, I have been praying for so long for my son to receive some relief from his struggles with his schooling. If his vocation is truly God's will, and I think it is; he has overcome so many obstacles to get where he is today. Please ask God to grant him some relief from the stress. Help him continue in his studies to fulfill his dreams and visions. If he is allowed to do this, I know he will help so many people. I believe God has given him a gift, but it seems He is trying him every step of the way, My son has persevered, and has never given up,has tried even harder, but the stress of failing in the program is ever constant. Please interceed for him, and ask God to give him a sign of hope, and to give hime the confidence he needs to succeed. You know the value of hard work. I trust in you to be his guide and to ask the Father for help in this petition. Thank you. St. Joseph. Amen.

    Dear St. Joseph,
    Thank you for giving me time to get to know you better. I hope we can have a much better relationship moving forward. I pray for your intercession for myself, for the people who manage this website, and for the other posters. I especially will pray for your intercession on behalf of the person who posted a very angry comment about a year ago. He sounds like a wounded soul. You know that I have been there myself. Please help him to heal.
    Love,
    Kristin

    ODE TO SAINT JOSEPH

    Joseph, humble, silent vase
    of splendor and abundant grace
    protector, defender of our Lord
    as a strong and flaming sword

    Joseph, most just, most pure
    what no man could ever ensure
    guardian of the holy house
    stronghold of your Holy Spouse

    Joseph, treasurer of the Heavenly King
    for Whom the angels in adoration sing
    so underestimated in the world's eyes
    with whom you never did compromise

    Joseph, without titles behind your name
    you never sought perishable fame
    you were an honest simple worker
    envied and attacked by the evil lurker

    Joseph, example of husband and father
    you never thought of yourself, but rather
    in obedience to God, with love and humility
    you shouldered the caring responsibility

    Joseph, assist us in our daily tasks
    never forsake us nor the one who asks
    to be non-judgmental and steadfast
    to obtain those virtues of yours at last.

    Dear Saint Joseph, I would like to thank you for all the blessings in my life. I have been praying for a job in a specific company for the last one year. Though I am not qualified for this job, the management liked my CV and they told me that they will give me an opportunity if there is an opening. I have been waiting for the last six months. Please request our Lord to perform a miracle as I need this job urgently. My dear Saint Joseph please help me.
