Novena to St Joseph – Day Nine & Consecration
By Fr Michael Gaitley, MIC

Day Nine

St Joseph, Who Died So Beautifully
Patron of a Holy Death

Dear St Joseph,

I know I am going to die.   When I do, I trust that you will be there to greet me with Jesus and Mary in a special way.   Will you please promise me this?   I trust you.   I believe that you will be there for me.   For my part, I will try not to be afraid of my death and I will live my life in preparation for it.   I will maybe even look forward to it as the time when I will get to meet my Lord, my Mother and you face to face.

Prepare me for my death, whenever it may be.   If it is sudden, please make sure that my soul is prepared and please make sure I will not be lost!

Dear St Joseph, obtain this grace for me as I consecrate myself to your fatherly care. I will then be fully yours.   Probably someday after that, I will die and I give you permission to take me home to my Father’s house when that day comes.

Saint Joseph, who died so beautifully, please prepare my soul for death.   Amenday nine novena to st joseph 19 march 2019.jpg

Day of Consecration to St Joseph

Dear St Joseph,

On this day, before God and your Immaculate Spouse, Mary,
I ___________________ choose you as my spiritual father forever.
I formally entrust myself to your fatherly care.
I love you and I trust in your prayers.
As your spiritual child,
I give you full permission
(and in fact, I’m begging you)
to please act in my life,
especially in these concerns:
………………………………
Praying for me constantly in a special way,
Bringing me even deeper into the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
Providing for me and all my loved ones,
Guarding and protecting me from bodily and spiritual evil,
Guiding me to always do God’s most perfect will,
Helping me to suffer with love and without complaint,
Giving me purity of body and of soul,
Forming me into a person of peace and joy,
Preparing me for a beautiful and happy death.

From this day forward, St Joseph,
you are my spiritual father
and I am your child.
I trust you and love you
and I look forward to meeting you someday in heaven.
I ask all of this through Jesus Christ our Lord
and for the glory of God,
who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

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.
