The Second Sorrow and Joy of St. Joseph
How intense was your sorrow, O St. Joseph, at not being able to provide a place for the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
What a grace and privilege it was for you and the happiest moment when you were able to hold the new-born infant in your arms, the Son of God.
St. Joseph, you were a docile instrument in the hands of the heavenly Father in arranging everything for the birth and childhood of Jesus. I ask your for faithful and constant correspondence to the will of God in my life. St. Joseph, pray for us. Amen
