Nine Days Novena to St. Joseph

For your special intentions, pray this powerful prayer to St. Joseph
This prayer has “never been known to fail”
St. Thomas Aquinas, “Some saints are privileged to extend to us their patronage with particular efficacy in certain needs, but not in others; but our holy patron St. Joseph has the power to assist us in all cases, in every necessity, in every undertaking.”

"Always pray and never give up" - Luke 18:1 

Oh, St. Joseph,
whose protection is so great, so prompt, so strong,
before the throne of God,
I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh, St. Joseph,
do 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.
Oh, St. 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.
St. Joseph, Patron of departed souls - pray for me.


O holy Joseph, I earnestly recommend to thy care the salvation of the soul of N____, which JESUS has redeemed by the shedding of His Blood. Thou knowest, great saint, how miserable are those who have banished this Divine Saviour from their hearts, and are in danger of eternally losing Him. Do not permit, then, that this soul so dear to me may be longer separated from Him; enlighten it with regard to the dangers that threaten it. Powerfully move this heart, and bring back this prodigal child to the bosom of the best of Fathers. Do not abandon it until thou hast opened to it the gates of Heaven, where it will bless thee eternally for the happiness which thou hast procured for it. Amen.
