Tomorrow we celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and guardian of Jesus. He is the patron of families, fathers, pregnant women, travelers, immigrants, house sellers, working people and, having died in the presence of Jesus and Mary, is the patron of a happy death.
You can scroll down to about the middle of this page to see lots of ideas for celebrating this feast day, and we hope one of the things you do to celebrate is listen to the audio CD of The Life of Saint Joseph that was part of this month’s Home Lesson packet.
Grant, we pray, almighty God, that by Saint Joseph’s intercession your Church may constantly watch over the unfolding of the mysteries of human salvation, whose beginnings you entrusted to his faithful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
