The Year of St. Joseph
This year has been proclaimed the year of St. Joseph. This provides a wonderful opportunity to get to know this amazing saint even better. If you’d like to do a Consecration to St. Joseph, here is a book we recommend. This Consecration takes 33 days. If you like to finish it on the Feast of St. Joseph (March 19), you’ll want to begin on February 15.
Find out why St. Joseph is called the Terror of Demons and why he is the patron of the universal Church. If you’ve done a Consecration to St. Joseph before, tell us how you’ve been impacted!
The book can be purchased on Amazon Amazon.com : consecration to st joseph or at the Catholic Company Consecration to St. Joseph – The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father | The Catholic Company.
The Year of St. Joseph Prayer
To you, O blessed Joseph (Ad te, beate Ioseph)
To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our afflictions, and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.
Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.
O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness.
As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.
