Let us pray and sing on the occasion of  St Joseph !

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis published the Apostolical Letter « Patris Corde » on the figure of the adoptive Jesus’ father. It is in the context of this Jubilee that the Pope proposes to the whole Church the Year “Saint Joseph” from 8th December 2020 to the 8th December 2021.

“May we live our fatherhood in the footsteps of St Joseph !” !

« In every exercise of our fatherhood, we should always keep in mind that it has nothing to do with possession, but is rather a “sign” pointing to a greater fatherhood. In a way, we are all like Joseph: a shadow of the heavenly Father, who “makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust” (Mt 5:45). And a shadow that follows his Son. » (Patris Corde, no7).

Let us learn from Saint Joseph to make Jesus and Mary our most precious treasure ! »

Praying St Joseph with Pope Francis

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.

Pope Francis
