My Dear St. Joseph

” ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to receive Mary into your home as your wife…She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus for He will save His people from their sins.’…When Joseph awoke he did as the Angel of the Lord had commanded him.” – Mt 1:20-21, 24

Remember, most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, my loving protector, Saint Joseph, that no one ever had recourse to your protection or asked your aid without obtaining relief.  Confiding, therefore, in your goodness, I come before you and humbly implore you.  Despise not my petitions, Foster-father of the Redeemer, but graciously receive them.
