A St. Joseph Novena with Pope Francis
Today begins the novena to St. Joseph leading up to his feast day next Friday, March 19th.
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
St. Joseph, Terror of Demons - pray for us
St. Joseph, Protector of the Church -pray for us
St. Joseph, Patron of Workers - pray for us
Please consider praying this novena. The pope’s letter is really wonderful, I have prayed through it a few times and look forward to doing so again.
I have prayed novenas to St. Joseph many times in my life, mostly when I’ve been discerning family and vocation decisions. He’s always come through.
If you pray this novena, please include two special intentions of mine.
