Joseph 27

As the ancient Joseph from the Old Testament, laid up such store of grain that he might hereafter provide for the famishing people, so also did our Joseph during his lifetime accumulate such great store of merit that he might hereafter powerfully aid his clients. For, in consideration of his great merits, when the people, afflicted by private or public calamities, raise their suppliant voices to Heaven for aid, God replies: “Go to Joseph, and do whatever he tells you.” Thus Joseph, after Mary, is appointed the perpetual dispenser of all heavenly favors; and, more generous in his gifts than the ancient Joseph, he opens all the treasures of divine graces…those which are spiritual and eternal.”
