Novena to St Joseph – Day Eight – 18 March

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

Day Eight

St Joseph, Man of Peace and Joy

Dear St Joseph,

I know the Bible doesn’t speak directly of your joy but how could you not have been full of joy?   I’m sure you were.   You lived in the presence of Jesus and Mary.    Well, St Joseph, please pray for me that I will also find my joy by also living in their presence. And having yourself lived in their presence, you must have been a man of such peace.  St Joseph, please pray for me that I keep my joy and not give in to sadness, laziness, or discouragement.   Also, pray that I keep my peace of soul and not hold on to anger and bitterness in my heart.   Help me to be merciful to everyone by offering forgiveness, that I might also, like you, be a person of true peace and joy.

Saint Joseph, Man of Peace and Joy, please put me at peace and help me find joy.   Amenday eight - novena to st joseph 18 march.jpg

Apologies – No posts today

So Sorry – No electricity!

Again this country is facing darkness (in many ways) but we are facing a melt-down in regard to electricity – the power is being cut at various times throughout each day to conserve the national grid.

Unfortunately, the times allocated to my area, meant I was unable to prepare any posts in the time I had available.

Hopefully, it will be better tomorrow.

May God Bless you, I miss you all!

May the Blessed Virgin, model of docility to the Spirit, help us, to abandon ourselves to Divine Providence.


P.S.  The Novena to St Joseph was pre-scheduled so will arrive in your inbox.power cut - so sorry 18 march 2019.jpg
