Since yesterday was the first Wednesday of St. Joseph’s month, here is a pic of our beloved Guardian and Father. His feast day is March 19th, and I begin my annual novena (to my co-patron saint) this Saturday. So, let me know if you have any prayer intentions that I can recommend to the most just heart of Joseph, on which the Infant Jesus would often rest His head.
In all necessities, Ite ad Ioseph (“Go to Joseph”, Genesis 41:55), for he is very kind and powerful. I have no doubt that he who provided for the needs of Jesus and Mary will surely also give you his aid and protection.
