Prayers To Saint Joseph

Catholic Warrior informs us that March is traditionally the month dedicated to St. Joseph, foster-father of Jesus. He put up a lovely devotion - the seven sorrows and joys of St. Joseph.

Exploring the blogosphere for a snazzy picture, I discovered the Children of Mary website which has a prayer of consecration to the Holy Family and a novena to St. Joseph.

Given the attacks on the purity of St. Joseph and Our Lady by so-called "Catholic" theologians, it might be a good time to pray this novena; recitation of the Divine Praises in front of the Blessed Sacrament in reparation for blasphemies wouldn't go amiss either!

Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true Man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be His Most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most Holy.
Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her Glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
Blessed be St. Joseph, her spouse, most chaste.
Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints.

Within my parish bounds, we have the small Chapel of St. Joseph the Worker, in the middle of a poor rural estate whose people have embraced a fellow worker as their Patron.

We'll have a nine day novena culminating in Mass and a grand celebration with a procession through the mainly Hindu and Buddhist village and Benediction afterwards.

St. Joe, pray for us!
