On the Solemnity of Saint Joseph: Why Live In Fear With Saint Joseph So Near?

On the Solemnity of Saint Joseph: Why Live In Fear With Saint Joseph So Near? 


So many people live their entire lives in fear.
Those steeped in the naturalistic falsehoods of the “left” live in fear that those who are steeped in the naturalistic falsehoods of the “right” will acquire and retain governmental power, putting out all manner of “alerts” prior to elections and during the presidential administrations of their hated foes. Such was the case during the administration of former President George Walker Bush as naturalists of the “left” denounced their fellow naturalist with great fury, disregarding the fact that they were of one mind with him in believing that is not necessary for every man and nation on the face of this earth to subordinate themselves at all times to the Deposit of Faith that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church in all that pertains to the good of souls.

Those steeped in the naturalistic falsehoods of the “right” live in fear that those who are steeped in the naturalistic falsehoods of the “left” will acquire and retain governmental power, putting out all manner of “alerts” prior to elections and during the presidential administrations of their hated foes. Such was the case during the administration of former President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton. Such is the case at present during the administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus, who was depicted six years ago now in a sacrilegious “artistic” display in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, New York.
Clinton was denounced with great fury in the 1990s by naturalists of the “right.” Obama was denounced with great fury now by these same naturalists. All of these denunciations have disregarded the fact that the naturalists of the “right” have been of one mind with the Clintons and Obama in believing that is not necessary for every man and nation on the face of this earth to subordinate themselves at all times to the Deposit of Faith that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church in all that pertains to the good of souls.
Catholics, I am afraid (pun intended), all across and up and down the ecclesiastical divide, live in fear as well.
Making the fatal mistake of watching the idiot box that is television and having their peace disturbed unnecessarily by what passes for “news,” going into histrionic fits over things that are “done deals” and are being visited upon us as a means to chastise the country for its many sins against the Sovereign Rights of Christ the King.
There is no naturalistic, inter-denominational or nondenominational way to put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again. We are witnessing the logical and inevitable degeneration that must take place in any regime founded on the false, naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferent and semi-Pelagian principles of Modernity.
There is one and only one means to stop this process of degeneration: Catholicism. There is no short-cut. All of the issues that present themselves for immediate, if not manic, attention are the result of a world that has been disordered not only by Original Sin and our own Actual Sins but by the logical consequences of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt and institutionalized by a veritable plethora of naturalistic ideologies and “philosophies” that are of the essence of Judeo-Masonry.
It is most telling that less than 0.5% of respondents in a recenbt Gallup Poll said that abortion was the most important issue facing the country (see Most Important Issues Facing the Nation). Less than half of a percentage point!. As I noted in Figures of Antichrist one hundred two months ago now, it’s all about the money. It hasn’t changed in the year 2017, has it?
The daily assassination of children by chemical and surgical means?
Just too bad. Less than one-half of a single percentage point in that recent Gallup survey where one in five respondents (twenty percent) were Catholic said that abortion was the most important issue facing the nation.
The gruesome details that emerged several ago from the convicted baby-butcher Kermit Gosnell’s trial in the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania?
Ah, unfit for the mainslime or slimestream media, which sought to bury the story even after Gosnell is in jail for the rest of life and as efforts were being made at the time to make a motion picture to depict his bloody house of horrors. (See Yes, There Is A Gosnell Trial Coverup by the Big News Organizations.)
It’s no wonder that only two percent of people in the United States of America understand that a nation that sheds the blood of the innocent under cover of the civil law is not “under God” and will never realize any long term material prosperity. 
One-half of one percent. That’s hardly a foundation for “electoral” success or flexing “muscle” to influence the course of public policy debates.
The actual reality in which we live should teach us that each and every single naturalistic or inter-denominational effort to “turn back” the tide of evil that has been let loose, proximately speaking, by the Protestant Revolt and its diabolical aftermath, does nothing whatsoever to “influence” the public-at-large. The universe of “conservative” websites and organizations consists of people who are talking to themselves about naturalistic ideas that are the proximate source of the problems we face, not any part of a solution that can come only from the conversion of this nation–and everyone in it–to Catholic Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Even the “conservative” “renaissance” at the polls in 2010, 2014 and 2016 that was founded in a desire to roll back the size and scope of intrusive, coercive power of the Federal government of the United States of America has failed for a variety of reasons, not the least being the disputes between “Tea Party” partisans and establishment Republicans, who care only about elections and not about policy. The principal reason that the so-called “conservative” “renaissance” has failed at the national level and will continue to fail that is naturalists of the “right” do not take cognizance of the fact that statism must triumph in a world where the Catholic Church is not able to exercise the Social Reign of Christ the King and hence a world where leaders do not pursue the common temporal good in light of man’s Last End, the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven.
Those with short memories–and that describes most people who are lost in the “trees” of various issues and crises” without seeing the larger, supernatural dimensions of the chastisement that we are suffering as a just punishment for our sins and those of our nation–tend to forget that nothing of any real substance was accomplished by the twelve years between January 3, 1995, and January 3, 2007, that the naturalists of the “right” controlled the United States House of Representatives and a mostly coterminous period in which Republicans controlled the United Sates Senate (save for the time between June 6, 2001, and January 3, 2003, when the defection of Vermont Senator James Jeffords, a Republican, to the Democratic Party caucus as an “independent” gave the Democrats a two seat-majority in the Senate). The partial, incomplete ban on partial-birth abortions? Guess again (see An Illusion of a Victory and We Don’t Want to Learn Anything.)
There is no need to be in fear about the realities facing us. Persecution is good!
Pope Leo XIII provided the answer in Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890:
As to what We have called the goods of the soul, which consist chiefly in the practice of the true religion and in the unswerving observance of the Christian precepts, We see them daily losing esteem among men, either by reason of forgetfulness or disregard, in such wise that all that is gained for the well-being of the body seems to be lost for that of the soul. A striking proof of the lessening and weakening of the Christian faith is seen in the insults too often done to the Catholic Church, openly and publicly — insults, indeed, which an age cherishing religion would not have toleratedFor these reasons, an incredible multitude of men is in danger of not achieving salvation; and even nations and empires themselves cannot long remain unharmed, since, when Christian institutions and morality decline, the main foundation of human society goes together with them. Force alone will remain to preserve public tranquillity and order. But force is very feeble when the bulwark of religion has been removed, and, being more apt to beget slavery than obedience, it bears within itself the germs of ever-increasing troubles. The present century has encountered memorable disasters, and it is not certain that some equally terrible are not impending. 
The very times in which we live are warning us to seek remedies there where alone they are to be found — namely, by re-establishing in the family circle and throughout the whole range of society the doctrines and practices of the Christian religion. In this lies the sole means of freeing us from the ills now weighing us down, of forestalling the dangers now threatening the world. For the accomplishment of this end, venerable brethren, We must bring to bear all the activity and diligence that lie within Our power. Although we have already, under other circumstances, and whenever occasion required, treated of these matters, We deem it expedient in this letter to define more in detail the duties of the Catholics, inasmuch as these would, if strictly observed, wonderfully contribute to the good of the commonwealth. We have fallen upon times when a violent and well-nigh daily battle is being fought about matters of highest moment, a battle in which it is hard not to be sometimes deceived, not to go astray and, for many, not to lose heart. It behooves us, venerable brethren, to warn, instruct, and exhort each of the faithful with an earnestness befitting the occasion: that none may abandon the way of truth.
It cannot be doubted that duties more numerous and of greater moment devolve on Catholics than upon such as are either not sufficiently enlightened in relation to the Catholic faith, or who are entirely unacquainted with its doctrines. Considering that forthwith upon salvation being brought out for mankind, Jesus Christ laid upon His Apostles the injunction to “preach the Gospel to every creature,” He imposed, it is evident, upon all men the duty of learning thoroughly and believing what they were taught. This duty is intimately bound up with the gaining of eternal salvation: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not, shall be condemned.” But the man who has embraced the Christian faith, as in duty bound, is by that very fact a subject of the Church as one of the children born of her, and becomes a member of that greatest and holiest body, which it is the special charge of the Roman Pontiff to rule with supreme power, under its invisible head, Jesus Christ.
Now, if the natural law enjoins us to love devotedly and to defend the country in which we had birth, and in which we were brought up, so that every good citizen hesitates not to face death for his native land, very much more is it the urgent duty of Christians to be ever quickened by like feelings toward the Church. For the Church is the holy City of the living God, born of God Himself, and by Him built up and established. Upon this earth, indeed, she accomplishes her pilgrimage, but by instructing and guiding men she summons them to eternal happiness. We are bound, then, to love dearly the country whence we have received the means of enjoyment this mortal life affords, but we have a much more urgent obligation to love, with ardent love, the Church to which we owe the life of the soul, a life that will endure forever. For fitting it is to prefer the good of the soul to the well-being of the body, inasmuch as duties toward God are of a far more hallowed character than those toward men.
Moreover, if we would judge aright, the supernatural love for the Church and the natural love of our own country proceed from the same eternal principle, since God Himself is their Author and originating Cause. Consequently, it follows that between the duties they respectively enjoin, neither can come into collision with the other. We can, certainly, and should love ourselves, bear ourselves kindly toward our fellow men, nourish affection for the State and the governing powers; but at the same time we can and must cherish toward the Church a feeling of filial piety, and love God with the deepest love of which we are capable. The order of precedence of these duties is, however, at times, either under stress of public calamities, or through the perverse will of men, inverted. For, instances occur where the State seems to require from men as subjects one thing, and religion, from men as Christians, quite another; and this in reality without any other ground, than that the rulers of the State either hold the sacred power of the Church of no account, or endeavor to subject it to their own will. Hence arises a conflict, and an occasion, through such conflict, of virtue being put to the proof. The two powers are confronted and urge their behests in a contrary sense; to obey both is wholly impossible. No man can serve two masters, for to please the one amounts to contemning the other.
As to which should be preferred no one ought to balance for an instant. It is a high crime indeed to withdraw allegiance from God in order to please men, an act of consummate wickedness to break the laws of Jesus Christ, in order to yield obedience to earthly rulers, or, under pretext of keeping the civil law, to ignore the rights of the Church; “we ought to obey God rather than men.” This answer, which of old Peter and the other Apostles were used to give the civil authorities who enjoined unrighteous things, we must, in like circumstances, give always and without hesitation. No better citizen is there, whether in time of peace or war, than the Christian who is mindful of his duty; but such a one should be ready to suffer all things, even death itself, rather than abandon the cause of God or of the Church.
Hence, they who blame, and call by the name of sedition, this steadfastness of attitude in the choice of duty have not rightly apprehended the force and nature of true law. We are speaking of matters widely known, and which We have before now more than once fully explained. Law is of its very essence a mandate of right reason, proclaimed by a properly constituted authority, for the common good. But true and legitimate authority is void of sanction, unless it proceed from God, the supreme Ruler and Lord of all. The Almighty alone can commit power to a man over his fellow men; nor may that be accounted as right reason which is in disaccord with truth and with divine reason; nor that held to be true good which is repugnant to the supreme and unchangeable good, or that wrests aside and draws away the wills of men from the charity of God.
Hallowed, therefore, in the minds of Christians is the very idea of public authority, in which they recognize some likeness and symbol as it were of the Divine Majesty, even when it is exercised by one unworthy. A just and due reverence to the laws abides in them, not from force and threats, but from a consciousness of duty; “for God hath not given us the spirit of fear.”
But, if the laws of the State are manifestly at variance with the divine law, containing enactments hurtful to the Church, or conveying injunctions adverse to the duties imposed by religion, or if they violate in the person of the supreme Pontiff the authority of Jesus Christ, then, truly, to resist becomes a positive duty, to obey, a crime; a crime, moreover, combined with misdemeanor against the State itself, inasmuch as every offense leveled against religion is also a sin against the State. Here anew it becomes evident how unjust is the reproach of sedition; for the obedience due to rulers and legislators is not refused, but there is a deviation from their will in those precepts only which they have no power to enjoin. Commands that are issued adversely to the honor due to God, and hence are beyond the scope of justice, must be looked upon as anything rather than laws. You are fully aware, venerable brothers, that this is the very contention of the Apostle St. Paul, who, in writing to Titus, after reminding Christians that they are “to be subject to princes and powers, and to obey at a word,” at once adds: “And to be ready to every good work.” Thereby he openly declares that, if laws of men contain injunctions contrary to the eternal law of God, it is right not to obey them. In like manner, the Prince of the Apostles gave this courageous and sublime answer to those who would have deprived him of the liberty of preaching the Gospel: “If it be just in the sight of God to hear you rather than God, judge ye, for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)
This a time of martyrdom, both dry and wet. Rejoice that is so. Rejoice!
Catholics in the time of Emperor Diocletian, under whom Saints Soter and Caius, whose feast is commemorated today, were not petitioning their Roman senators to stop the persecutions. They knew that such an effort was futile, that Diocletian and his minions had the physical means at their disposal to do whatever it was they wanted to do. Diocletian and his minions were not going to be stopped by means petition drives sponsored by a small number of Roman citizens. Could you imagine the following petition: “STOP DIOCLETIAN NOW! WRITE YOUR SENATOR. STOP THE MADNESS. HE IS KILLING US. ROME’S FOUNDING FATHERS, ROMULUS AND REMUS, WOULD BE APPALLED AT THIS.” Catholics knew that the blood of the martyrs was the seed of the Church. They weren’t having “tea parties” to stop the persecutions. Why do we live in such histrionic fear?
Catholics in the time of King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were not petitioning the Parliament to stop the persecutions following the Acts of Supremacy in 1534 and in 1559. They knew that those respective monarchs were going to act as they desired. Those Catholics who remained faithful to the Catholic Church knew that they were not going to get anywhere in the legal and political structures under the absolute control of these monarchs. These Catholics, who saw most of their co-religionists accept the new religion of Anglicanism and come to hate Catholicism and everything associated with it within thirty to forty years of Henry’s break with Rome, knew that martyrdom was going to be their path to Heaven should it befall them. While they circulated pamphlets in support of the Faith, they did not waste their time by trying to convince political officials who they knew were going to protect themselves by doing the bidding of the king or the queen.
Yes, while we must note the efforts of the statists at present and denounce things contrary to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, we must also recognize the fact that the effects of Modernity and Modernism have made measures contrary to the good of souls acceptable to large numbers of citizens. A new era of martyrdom is upon us. Rejoice!
We are not going “turn back the tide” by use of the means of the Protestant Revolt (protests). We are going to win new souls for Christ the King and His true Church, which is now in the catacombs, by doing our work as apostles to pray and to work for the conversion of non-Catholics.
This time of martyrdom gives those of us us who have been lukewarm and worldly and half-hearted in our interior lives an opportunity to make reparation for our sins by means of bearing a visible, tangible witness to the Catholic Faith–not to any naturalistic “creed”–as the one and only foundation of personal and social order. Rejoice, my friends, as God has known–indeed, He has willed it so–from all eternity that we would be alive in these troubling times, which means that the graces won for us by the shedding of the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, are sufficient for the difficulties that we face, both personally and socially.
The graces won for us by Our Divine Redeemer on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady are also sufficient for us to deal with the ecclesiastical crisis we face at this time as the Church Militant on earth is going through her Holy Saturday, as one very perceptive reader explained yesterday in a note to me. There is no need to live in fear.
Christ the King will emerge victorious following the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother. The apostasies and sacrileges and blasphemies and other outrages being visited upon us by the the conciliar revolutionaries, who are in physical custody of our church buildings and schools, will be swept away. There is no need to live in fear, no need to “petition” men who have expelled themselves from the Catholic Church by virtue of subscribing to–and professing most publicly–propositions that have been condemned by her most solemnly and consistently without an deviation at all.
Why live in fear with Saint Joseph is so near now as ever before?
We have the assurance that Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful whose solemnity in Paschaltide, a feast that originated with Pope Pius IX in 1847 as the Patronage of Saint Joseph before being given its current name, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, by Pope Saint Pius X in 1911 and positioned in 1913 on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter, is very close to us in our sufferings and difficulties and trials today.
Saint Joseph, the just and silent man of the House of David, suffered in his holy life. He suffered without fear. He trusted in the Providence of God, taking unto himself the care of God’s very Mother, the Singular Vessel of Devotion through which would be conceived and pass into the world his, Saint Joseph’s, foster-Son, Whom he loved with a tender devotion and perfection as though He had been his own flesh and blood. He suffered intense sorrows of his soul during his lifetime.
Saint Joseph suffered pain at the lowly poverty of the birthplace of his foster-Son.
Saint Joseph suffered pain at the Circumcision as he watched the shedding of the first droplets of his foster-Son’s Most Precious Blood.
Saint Joseph listened with patient concern to the Prophecy of Simeon that a Sword of Sorrow would pierce the Immaculate Heart of Most Chaste Spouse.
Saint Joseph suffered as he had to to take the Holy Family into exile, finding a place for the Holy Family to live and to find work to support Our Lady and Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Saint Joseph suffered sorrow during the difficult journey back from Egypt.
Saint Joseph’s good heart suffered ruing the loss of his foster-Son for three day.
Oh yes, Saint Joseph suffered. He suffered, however, without fear, without panic, without histrionics, without even uttering a word that is recorded in Sacred Scripture. Saint Joseph had sorrows. He had concerns. True enough. However, Saint Joseph trusted in God entirely. So we must we, especially since his Divine foster-Son has given him to us to be the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful.
Saint Joseph outlived the wretched Herod the Great, who sought the life of the Christ-Child. Saint Joseph will help us outlive, at least spiritually, the Herods of the present day who populate the halls of government and the institutions of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Saint Joseph is near. Very near. Why live in fear?
Saint Joseph also had his joys in life (Saint Gabriel’s message of joy and comfort, the Birth of his very Saviour in Bethlehem, the great honor given to him to give his foster-Son his Holy Name, Jesus, knowing the effects of his foster-Son’s Redemptive work, seeing the idols of Egypt fall at the feet of the Infant Jesus, his holy life with Our Lady, his ever-Virginal spouse, and Our Lord, and his finding Our Lord after having lost Him for three days). So will we, both in this life and, please God and by the intercession of Our Lady and Good Saint Joseph we die in states of Sanctifying Grace, if we maintain the perfect equanimity of spirit as possessed Saint Joseph throughout his own sorrows and glories. (A formula for meditating on the Sorrows and Glories of Saint Joseph is appended at the end of this article.)
Why live in fear with Saint Joseph so near?
The only thing that matters in each of our lives is dying in a state of Sanctifying Grace with Perfect Contrition for our sins. The devil wants us live in fear and in a constant state of panic about this or that piece of legislation or this or that manufactured virus that is spread so as to put us into a panic and to increase the size and scope of governmental power over our lives. Saint Joseph, the terror of demons, wants to live in peace now as members of his Divine Son’s Catholic Church so that he, the Patron of Departing Souls, can be better able to assist us at the hour of our deaths as we invoke his fatherly protection after that of His Most Chaste Spouse, Our Lady.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you. Save souls!
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us now and in death’s agony!
Saint Joseph provided spiritual and temporal security and comfort to the Mother of God and his foster-Son, Who he was told by Saint Gabriel the Archangel had been conceived by the power of God the Holy Ghost. He will provide that same spiritual and temporal security to us, will he not? Indeed, hasn’t he done so throughout the course of our lives?
Saint Joseph is helping us in this era of apostasy and betrayal. The foster-father of Our Divine Redeemer, Who offered up His life on the wood of the Holy Cross in atonement for our sins, intercedes for our spiritual fathers on earth, our true bishops and our true priests who make no concessions to the counterfeit church of conciliarism or to its false shepherds who blaspheme his foster-Son by falling down, at least figuratively, if not literally, in front of the same false idols that fell in front of his foster-Son in Egypt.
Why live fear with Saint Joseph as near to us as he was to Our Lady and Our Lord on earth. He is even closer to them now in Heaven?
Why live in fear with Saint Joseph so near?
The readings for Matins in today's Divine Office contain a sermon by Saint Bernardine of Siena about our the man of House of David chosen to be Our Lady’s Most Chaste Spouse and her Divine Son’s most tenderly loving foster-father, Saint Joseph:
When any special favours are conferred upon a reasonable being, it is the common rule that whenever the grace of God electeth such and such an one for such and such a grace, or for such and such an high post of duty, the person so elected receiveth all the gifts of grace which be needful for him in that state of life whereunto he is called, and receiveth them abundantly. Of this there is an excellent instance in the case of the holy Joseph, the socalled father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the real husband of her, who is Queen of the world, and Lady of Angels. He had been elected by the Eternal Father to be the faithful nurse and warder of His two chief treasures, that is, His Son, and Joseph's own Wife. This duty Joseph faithfully discharged, and consequently the Lord hath said to him: Well done, thou good and faithful servant enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Matth. xxv. 21.
This man Joseph, if we compare him with the Universal Church of Christ, is he not that elect and chosen one, through whom, and under whom, Christ is orderly and honestly brought into the world? If, then, the Holy Universal Church be under a debt to the Virgin Mother, because it is through her that she hath been made to receive Christ, next to Mary she oweth love and worship to Joseph. Joseph is the key of the (Church of the Saints) which were under the Old Testament, in whose person the noble structure of Patriarchs and Prophets reacheth her completion and realiseth her promises. He is the only one of them who actually enjoyed in full fruition what God had been pleased to promise before to them. It is, therefore, with good reason that we see a type of him in that Patriarch Joseph who stored up corn for the people. But the second Joseph hath a more excellent dignity than the first, seeing that the first only gave to the Egyptians bread for the body, but the second was the watchful guardian for all the elect of that Living Bread Which came down from heaven, of Which whosoever eateth will never die.
There can be no doubt that Christ still treateth Joseph in heaven with that familiarity, honour, and most high condescension which He paid him, like a Son to a father, while He walked among men; nay, rather, that He hath now crowned and completed those habits. We may very reasonably suspect that it was with a peculiar meaning that Christ said (to him) Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. The joy of being blessed for ever entereth into the heart of man, but when the Lord said (to Joseph), Enter thou into joy, He probably meant mystically to bid him realise a joy which should not be within him only, but outside him also, above him, and below him, and all round about him, and overflowing him as it were a great bottomless pit of joy to swallow him up altogether. Therefore, O thou blessed Joseph! remember us! In thy helpful prayers, make intercession for us with Him Who vouchsafed to be supposed thy Son! Likewise, obtain some pity for us from that most blessed Maiden who was thy wife, and the Mother of Him, Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen. (Matins, The Divine Office, Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide.)
No, we have nothing whatsoever to fear from the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil if we rely upon the patronage of the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, Saint Joseph.
On this glorious feast day, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, may we put aside the needless fear and panic caused by the naturalists in the civil realm and the conciliarists in the counterfeit church of conciliarism as we beseech him as follows each morning and each night of our lives.
O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O thou Saint Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful intercession, and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee, and Jesus asleep in thy arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near thy 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. Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen!   
May we pray an extra set of the Joyful Mysteries of Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary today to honor Saint Joseph, who has been given to us to help us to get home to Heaven by living in the same spirit of confident hope and trust in God’s Holy Will as characterized his entire life on earth. Our reward will be Heavenly if we maintain our steadfast devotion to Saint Joseph, and you might even be amazed at what he does for you temporally if you invoke him with confidence and trust on a daily basis.
Why live in fear with Saint Joseph so near?
Shouldn’t we draw nearer to Saint Joseph in this life so that he will be as close as possible to us as we prepare to enter the next?
Why live in fear with Saint Joseph so near?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
