ST JOSEPH’S FIRST SORROW AND JOY

 

Joseph 19

The Seven Sorrows and the Seven Joys of St. Joseph

The first sorrow and first joy of St. Joseph

Blessed Joseph, how great was your anguish when you perceived in your beloved the signs of approaching motherhood.

How joyous Blessed Joseph, you were, when in a dream God revealed to you the ineffable joy of knowing that your spouse was given fruitfulness by the Holy Spirit.

The first sorrow and first joy of St. Joseph

Obtain for us, St. Joseph, an increase in faith, hope and charity, an ample infusion of the cardinal virtues, and an abundance of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Amen
