Novena to St Joseph – Day Seven
By Fr Michael Gaitley, MIC

Day Seven

St Joseph, Pure of Heart

Dear St Joseph,

I said I want to be a saint and saints need to be pure not only of body but of soul. Regarding purity of body, St Joseph, guard me, protect me and defend me from temptations against purity.

I rely on you, St Joseph.   Don’t let me fall.   Don’t let my eyes or thoughts wander. If they do, please bring them back to Jesus. I trust in you, St. Joseph.   You lived purely with Mary in the midst of her beauty.   Help me to see the beauty of others with your own pure vision.   If I fall, help me to find God’s mercy and free me from any bondage to such sin. Regarding purity of intentions, help me do everything not to please myself or others but to please God alone.   Give me this grace as my dear spiritual father.   I trust in you, St. Joseph.

Saint Joseph, Pure of Heart, please lend me your own purity of heart. Amen.day seven novena to st joseph 17 march 2019.jpg

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site 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. "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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
