Praying for our fathers along with St Joseph!
A father is a person who received a very particular assignment from the Lord: to welcome and raise in faith every child God entrusts to him. What a token of confidence! What a project of love! But what a great responsibility!
During this novena, I plan on praying to St. Joseph, the Prince of Fathers, while pondering each of his major virtues: fairness, chastity, prudence, courage, obedience, fidelity, and patience.
St. Joseph had the immense privilege to be the father of our Lord Jesus. Today, fathers are in dire need of a role model, both on spiritual and day-to-day level, who will assist them in carrying out their mission successfully, and in enduring faithfully the trials affecting their children’s lives, such as reject, failure, illness, death…
Every day, we will meditate on one of these virtues, with the help of a text, a picture, or a video illustrating the virtue in question. You are welcome to share with us your experiences with a father that left a mark on your life.
To conclude this novena, I will teach you a special prayer for Father’s day.
Here is the novena schedule:
Day one: Justice
Day two: Chastity
Day three: Prudence
Day four: Courage
Day five: Obedience
Day six: Fidelity
Day seven: Patience
Day eight: Humility
Day nine: Let’s celebrate our fathers!
Hail Joseph, full of grace. The Lord rested in your arms and grew up in front of you. Blessed art thou amongst all men and blessed is the divine Child of your virginal wife, Jesus. Saint Joseph, as being the father of the Son of God, pray for us at the time of our family, health and work worries until our last days and deign to rescue us at the hour of our death. Amen.
