Joseph 23
O 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.  O 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 asked for your Heavenly intercession I may offer my thanksgiving and praise to the Heavenly Father for the answer to my prayers.
St. Joseph, pray for us.


  1. Dear Sr Kathyrn Thank you for your regular emails, which I enjoy very much, Now i have been praying to St. Joseph, for the past 3years and that includes saying the prayer you have posted, as well as St Joseph’s Cloak novena without missing a day in that time by the grace Of God, my prayers have not been heard ( well one has my daughter has got better employment) One other remains outstanding and no sign of it been answered should i give it a rest at this stage.? St Joseph usually answers fairly quickly but not this time. What do you suggest ? Thank you God bless Brendan

    • Dear Brendan,

      The prayer isn’t magic. You are receiving an answer, but can you hear it? Sometimes the answer is no to the request you have because the request you have isn’t exactly what you need for your situation. Is something else changing in your life or in the situation? St. Joseph probably asked God not to have to stay in Egypt. He had to stay in Egypt. He probably prayed to God to find his Son the first day, he didn’t. But he learned that God cared for him and provided for him even in these situations that seemed all wrong. In the end the situations were wrapped into the mystery of salvation history. So widen the scope of your inquiry and trusting prayer and see….

      Sr. Kathryn
