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

Being 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 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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
