Novena to St. Joseph

Yesterday I finished a Novena to St. Joseph with the intention of helping FishEaters serve its main purpose of bringing souls to Christ, His Church, and to Tradition, and so that there's enough traffic, advertising money, donations, and superfluous subscription money that I'm able to survive financially, including being able to pay for the medical stuff I need.

I thought I'd ask folks here to pray the same Novena for the same cause, if you have the time and will.  The Novena I prayed is this one:

Novena Wrote:
O glorious descendant of the kings of Judah, Inheritor of the virtues of all the patriarchs. Just and happy St. Joseph, listen to my prayer. Thou art my glorious protector, and shall ever be, after Jesus and Mary the object of my most profound veneration and confidence. Thou art the most hidden, though the greatest Saint, and art particularly the patron of those who serve God with the greatest purity and fervor. In union with all those who have ever been most devoted to thee I now dedicate myself to thy service; beseeching thee, for the sake of Jesus Christ, who vouchsafed to love and obey thee as a son, to become a father to me; and to obtain for me the filial respect, confidence and love of a child towards thee.

O powerful advocate of all Christians, whose intercession, as St. Theresa assures us, has never been found to fail, deign to intercede for me now, and to implore for me the particular intention of this Novena.

(Mention your intentions here)

Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

Present me O great Saint to the adorable Trinity, with Whom thou hadst so glorious and so intimate a correspondence. Obtain that I may never efface by sin the Sacred Image according to the likeness of which, I was created. Beg for me that my divine Redeemer would enkindle in my heart and in all hearts, the fire of His Love, and infuse therein the virtues of His adorable infancy, His purity, simplicity, obedience, and humility.

Obtain for me likewise a lively devotion to thy virgin spouse, and protect me so powerfully in life and death, that I may have the happiness of dying as thou didst, in the friendship of my Creator, and under the immediate protection of the Mother of God. Amen.



I have to publicly thank and praise St. Joseph for something that has happened. I can't get into the details, but - God be praised! St. Joseph be praised! Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost! As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall EVER be, world without end!
