St. Joseph took care of Jesus and Mary whilst he was on earth, may God, through the intercession of St. Joseph, protect you and your family and grant you an abundance of blessings. WOULD YOU LIKE THAT YOUR INTENTIONS WILL BE INCLUDED IN OUR PRAYERS during the NOVENA TO SAINT JOSEPH which begins on 11th MARCH and concludes on his feast day, 19th MARCH?
By virtue of the sublime dignity which God has granted to his most faithful servant Joseph, "the Church, after the Blessed Virgin, his spouse, has always held him in great honor and showered him with praise, having recourse to him amid tribulations.
The reasons why St. Joseph must be considered the special patron of the Church, and the Church in turn draws exceeding hope from his care and patronage, chiefly arise from his having been the husband of Mary and the presumed father of Jesus..., Joseph was in his day the lawful and natural guardian, head and defender of the Holy Family.... It is thus fitting and most worthy of Joseph's dignity that, in the same way that he once kept unceasing holy watch over the family of Nazareth, so now does he protect and defend with his heavenly patronage the Church of Christ.
Besides trusting in Joseph's sure protection, the Church also trusts in his noble example, which transcends all individual states of life and serves as a model for the entire Christian community, whatever the condition and duties of each of its members may be.
Thank you for your generous donation and petition for our Novena to St. Joseph. Your intentions will be included in our prayers during the Novena which begins on 11th March and concludes on his feast day, 19th March.
St. Joseph took care of Jesus and Mary whilst he was on earth, may God, through the intercession of St. Joseph, protect you and your family and grant you an abundance of blessings.
Your sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Jose Romero OAR (Fr. Promoter)
