Why Pray a Novena?
A novena is said consecutively for nine days, and can be an effective means to gaining a favorable intercession on your behalf. Saying a St Joseph Novena can be an effective way to get what your asking for. Say these prayers for nine days in a row.
With the utmost care, St. Joseph entrusts his son with our intentions. Don't forget he's waiting in silence to take care of your needs!
I wish I could persuade everyone to be devoted to glorious St Joseph, for I do not remember to this day ever having asked him for anything that he didn't grant me. I only request, for the love of God, whoever will not believe me will test the truth of what I say. - St. Teresa of Avila
Prayer from the community
SAINT JOSEPH, MODEL FOR LABOURERS
Joseph, Model of Labourers Good Saint Joseph, when God wanted a family for his Son, He looked among the labourers, and chose you along with Mary, demonstrating His esteem for human work. You put your heart into your work, and shared your workshop with Jesus. Your work, like that of other humans, found new meaning in the presence of God. Sustain us in the hope of finding work when we are confronted with the desolation of unemployment. Counsel business leaders to create an equitable division of labour that is respectful of individuals, and promotes our growth and happiness. Help us to perform our work joyfully, conscientiously, fairly and honestly. Prepare our hearts to recognize your Son in our colleagues at work. Amen. (St. Joseph Oratory, Montreal, CANADA)
