St Joseph

March 16, 2017

Go to Joseph!

I have never known anyone who … honoured him by particular services who did not advance greatly in virtue, for he helps in a special way those souls who recommend themselves to him,

St Teresa wrote in the book of her Life: Would that I could persuade all people to be devotedt to this glorious saint, for I know by long experience what blessings he can obtain for us from God. It is now very many years since I began asking him for something on his feast, and I always received it.  If the petition was in any way amiss, he rectified it for my greater good.

As she said: I took for my patron the glorious St. Joseph and recommended myself earnestly to him.
