Pope Francis has given us a wonderful blessing by encouraging devotion to Saint Joseph over the next year, which is dedicated to him. We are encouraged to seek Joseph’s help especially as we quietly sacrifice to control and bring an end to the pandemic.
An indulgence has been made available for those who make an act of piety and complete the other sacramental requirements.
We are encouraged to pray for Joseph’s help especially on Wednesdays, the 19th of each month, and his feast days such as the Holy Family, March 19th, and May 1st.
“Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God entrusted his only Son; in you, Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man. Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen.”
