13 March – Novena to St Joseph – Day Three

Novena to St Joseph
By Fr Michael Gaitley, MIC

Day Three
St Joseph, Good Provider

Dear St Joseph,

As the foster father of Jesus, you provided for His human needs.   Through the work of your hands, he had food to strengthen Him, a house to give Him shelter and clothes to keep Him warm.

Now, from heaven, you’re still working, St Joseph.   Indeed, the loving labour of your prayers provide for all the members of the Body of your Son.   But as I’m preparing to consecrate myself completely to you, I ask you to please provide for me and for my loved ones in a special way.   Through your prayers, please make sure that we always have food to eat, a roof over our heads and clothes to wear.   Also, please pray for us that in times of abundance, we will never forget God.   Pray for us that we will always be grateful for God’s gifts and that we will never be a slave to things like food or money, pleasure or power.   Finally, help us always to remember and be generous with the poor.

Saint Joseph, with you as my spiritual father, I will do my best not to give in to useless anxiety about my job, money, or material things.   I believe you will always make sure I have what I need and as a good father, I ask that you indulge me a bit by even providing for my material wants, provided they don’t take me away from Jesus.

Saint Joseph, Good Provider, please provide for my needs through your powerful prayers.   Amendy three novena to st joseph - good provider - 13 march 2019.jpg
