See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Solemnity of St. Joseph

St. Joseph, lover of poverty, pray for us.
St. Joseph, solace of the afflicted, pray for us.
St. Joseph, hope of the sick, pray for us.


In thanksgiving for the patronage and protection of St. Joseph, and numerous favors granted.

  1. My favorite prayer to St. Joseph:


    IN PRAISE

    (Note: This prayer was taken from the booklet "Devotions to Saint Joseph" by Brian Moore, S.J., printed and published by the Society of St. Paul.)

    All the hosts of heaven praise you, Joseph,

    for in your arms you carried the Son of God.

    Alone of all men you were found worthy to be

    the husband of the Virgin Mother,

    and to carry in your arms the Son of God.

    He who ruled all things obeyed you,

    and He who teaches the whole creation

    was taught by you.

    The Church on earth sings your praise,

    for in your lowly house she had her beginning,

    for you alone of all men were found worthy to be

    the husband of the Church's Mother,

    and to carry in your arms the Christ

    whose Body she is.
