Do not be afraid.
Today is a special feast for me. I owe much to St. Joseph.
I liked the morning meditation from Cardinal Begoglio in Magnificat, on how Joseph was afraid, yet found courage ...
St. Joseph has always saved me, as he saved Our Lady and the Child Jesus. He also saved me from an isolated life. He reordered my life, rearranged things.
Prayer. Never give up prayer. If you seek chastity - go to Joseph. He will be your director and protector. He will teach you to pray, he will be your good Samaritan, he will find you lodging, support, and healing. He will guide you and bring you to Jesus and Mary, in the Church. Be not afraid.
What seems impossible for man is possible with God.
O St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong,so prompt before the Throne of God,I place in you all my interests and desires.O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercessionand obtain for me from your Divine Sonall spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord;so that having engaged here below your Heavenly powerI may offer my Thanksgiving and Homageto the most Loving of Fathers.O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating youand Jesus asleep in your arms.I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me,and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls,pray for us.Amen
