St. Joseph

PATRON OF FATHERS AND THE CHURCH

PROTECTOR OF FATHERS AND FAMILIES

Prayer to Saint Joseph
Oh 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.  Oh St. Joseph do
assist me by your powerful intercession
and obtain for me from your Divine
Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus
Christ, Our Lord, so that having
engaged here below your heavenly
power, I may offer my Thanksgiving and
homage to the most loving of fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary of
contemplating you and 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.
Verse on back Story of St. Joseph

St. Joseph
Patron of Fathers, the Church 
(First Century)

Joseph was a just man, who worked as a carpenter in the little

village of Nazareth.  According to the New Testament, he

was a descendant from the royal house of David and

betrothed to Mary during the time of the Annunciation.

When Joseph found out that Mary had conceived a child before

they were married, he was greatly distressed.  Because he was a kind

man, he wished to end their betrothal quietly, and spare Mary any

shame, but an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream to guide him

and to calm his fears.  The angel told Joseph that Mary's child had

been conceived by the holy Spirit and was the long awaited

Messiah who would save his people from their sins.  Moved and

overjoyed at this news, Joseph, without hesitation, obeyed God and

took Mary as his wife.  Joseph proved himself to be the faithful

protector of Mary and her Son.  He cared for Mary during the

birth of Jesus, and obeyed God's angel once more when he took his

family on a difficult journey to Egypt to escape Herod, who wished

to murder Jesus.

As Jesus' father, it was Joseph's duty to guide Jesus and educate

Him on the scriptures.  Because God chose Joseph as the steadfast

guardian of Jesus on earth, he is also patron of the Universal

Church as well as the special protector of fathers of families. 

Joseph is also considered the patron of departing souls, as it is

believed that Joseph died in the arms of Jesus and Mary, years

before Jesus began his preaching.  He is often invoked by those

seeking a peaceful passing.
