NOVENA TO ST. JOSEPH
This prayer was found in the 50th year of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Sometime during the 16th century, it was sent by the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into
battle. It is said that whoever shall read this prayer or take it with them,
shall never die a sudden death or be drowned, nor shall poison take effect
on them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy, or shall be
burned in any fire or shall be overpowered in battle.)
Say this prayer for nine days for anything you may desire. Then let go and
let God. Trust that whatever is the outcome of your novena is truly what is
best for you in accordance with the will of God.)
Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the
throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Saint Joseph, assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from
your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so
that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving
and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms;
I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name
and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw
my dying breath. Amen
Saint Joseph, hear my prayers and obtain my petitions. O Saint Joseph, pray
for me. (Mention your intention)
