Novena to St Joseph
By Fr Michael Gaitley, MIC
St Joseph, Who Did God’s Will
Dear St Joseph,
You did God’s will. Dare I say, you did it perfectly? Saint Joseph, I want to also do God’s most perfect will. But on my own, I will fail. I need your help. I trust that with you as my spiritual father, you will guide me to always do God’s most perfect will. Truly, St. Joseph, I want to reach the degree of glory that God has prepared for me in heaven. I want to bear fruit that will last. I don’t want to let God down. I want to be a saint. Help me, St Joseph. You see how weak and sinful I am. But teach me, good father. Help me to follow the commandments and please make my heart sensitive to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit.
I know that as I entrust myself to your care, you will guide me and show me how to always do God’s will. I give you permission to redirect the stream of my life if it ever departs from God’s most perfect will.
Saint Joseph, who did God’s will, please always keep me in God’s most perfect will. Amen
Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco
Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.
This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975)
This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
