Monday the 19th is the Feast of St. Joseph [just 2 days after the Feast of St. Patrick]. So you can begin this prayer today and conclude it on his feast.
Happy St Patrick’s Day & Happy St. Joseph’s Day!
Fr Liam Quinlan
Say this prayer for nine days, and place your intentions before God. Trust that whatever is the outcome of your novena is truly what is best for you in accordance with the will of God.
Novena to St. Joseph
O Saint Joseph, hear my prayers and
obtain my petitions. O Saint Joseph, pray for
O Saint 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 Saint Joseph assist me by your powerful
intercession and obtain for me from your
Divine Son all spiritual blessings; so that having
engaged here below your heavenly power
I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to
the Most Loving of Fathers.
O Saint Joseph, I never weary of contemplating
you with 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.
Saint Joseph, patron of departing souls,
pray for us. Amen
