Novena to St. Joseph

            Oh St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so
            strong, so prompt 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 Loving of

            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 departing souls, pray
            for us.

         Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you
         may desire. It has seldom been known to fail.
