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

    Dear St. Joseph,

    I have asked you to help me twice and you did. I have asked you for specific things and you made it happen. The both times I was in shock.The second wish you delivered what I asked but I didn't go through with it, but I just want you to know that you are so real and so so incredibly amazing.

    Love,
    Emma

    A most underrated Saint. .Absolutely trusted in the word of God,s messangers twice. Gave total care and concern to Mary and Jesus. If young men lived similarly marriages would be more meaningful. As he was Foster Father to Jesus I also commend him to displaced children from separated or divorced parents.

    Thank you St Joseph for your interceding. Thank You Lord for hearing my petitions through his intercessions.

    :)

    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
    (To be said for 9 consecutive days, it really works)

    A poem I wrote for Saint Joseph 3/19/2011
    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.
