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 beloved St. Joseph:
    You know my heartache from the home sale that fell through yesterday. Help me to "man up" and take setbacks with strength and faith as you had to do to when you left the comfort of your lifelong home to protect your beloved family from those who sought to destroy them. I pray the Lord will send comfort and assurance to the gentlemen whose livelihood is now in jeopardy because of a fearful banker. Please ask your beloved Son Jesus to touch the heart and life of the banker as he faces uncertainty in world financial markets, send him strength and courage. Grant us the peace of Christ that all of us involved with this broken business deal will be slow to anger, eager to forgive and ever willing to share the love and mercy of our blessed Lord, who stopped at nothing short of the agony of a tortured death to prove his unending love for us. Help me to be fully aware of how privileged I am to own property in a world where so many fathers agonize over how they will feed their starving children. As I contemplate your blessed life, may I covet only one thing, to to feel the love you felt for your precious Son, entrusted to your care by the One who creates and sustains, as you held his precious body in your arms, kissed and adored, protected, fed and clothed. May I identify with you, learn from you and receive your loving guidance I pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

    Thank you St. Joseph for interceding for me and answering my petitions. (I pray the 30 day novena)

    thank you for interceding and praying for:
    - my Goddaughters to get christened.
    - For the meeting with C, I prayed to you that we would be the ones for each other. I thought meeting up with him would be impossible. I believe your intercession helped to arrange the date so that I could finally see we probably aren't suited as life partners. Thank you so much.
    - Thank you for work & duties going well & for helping me with my activities, studies and passing my exams.
    -For my health & the health of my family and our faith. Also for my friends. thank for being my guardian, counsellor, protector, intercessor and father. I love you always St. Joseph thank you for praying for us.

    St Joseph is an inspiration to me for his courage, his trust in God and his amazing love for Mary and Jesus. I thank God for such inspiration and pray for courage as I face a very serious journey in my health.... I pray for courage to face what is ahead. I pray for my family especially my brother as he tries to sell his home ...may the right buyer come along to buy this house that has been their home for a long time. May his new home be a place of love and laughter as they enjoy the space and the place with everyone....I also pray that my home sells and goes to the right people as I continue to make my new life in my home town closer to family and friends. St Joseph pray for us. Tuesday 28th June 2011

    Dear St. Joseph, Stepfather of Jesus, husband of the Blessed Mother, I implore your help and guidance; my brother, Lenny and his wife, Windy are letting their house go and moving into another. The bank will take possession of the first home, however, they need your help in selling the first house and they need your guidance in their new home. Please allow them to sell the first home without incident or loss of monetary values and let their new home be filled with love, hope, and happiness. Please St. Joseph help them. I ask of this because I myself don't have the money to help them but they are so generous with me that praying for them and their well being is so important to all of us. Help them St. Joseph. Bless them and guide them. Thank you for listening to my prayers. Always with love, Lynette
