St. Joseph Comments

Everything we know about the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus comes from Scripture and that has seemed too little for those who made up legends about him. We know he was a carpenter, a working man, for the skeptical Nazarenes ask about Jesus, "Is this not the carpenter's son?" (Matthew 13:55). He wasn't rich for when he took Jesus to the Temple to be circumcised and Mary to be purified he offered the sacrifice of two ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. Joseph, I ask for your assistance in finding an academic college job. Due to reasons beyond my control, I have no job after the summer. I had an interview in a beautiful place that had nice faculty. I pray that I get that position. If not, please help me find permanent employment and peace. Teaching is my calling.
    Amen.

    St Joseph, foster father of Jesus and husband of Mary, I ask you to intercede with Jesus for me and my family and ask Him to grant all my petitions. Help us to live together as you lived in Nazareth with Jesus and Mary, united in respect and love. Ask Jesus to: grant us all health of mind and body, success in our jobs and protection in all our travels; help me to overcome my financial difficulties and be able to pay all my debts; have mercy on the souls of our deceased family members, relatives and friends and forgive them their sins. St Joseph, Head of the Holy Family, pray for us, protect us, help us and guide us.

    St. Joseph my older son is blessed with your name. He is fiercely protective of his family and enjoys learning Gods word. Please St. Joseph I pray for my family to find our way out of the struggles we have been battling. Thank you for keeping us together, clothed, fed and, sheltered, inspite of our troubles. Lead us to the light at the end of this blackness we can't seem to escape. My husband is losing faith and I don't know what to do. Please St. Joseph hear my plea. In Jesus"s name I pray. Amen.

    He has become so close to my heart and I believe this to be the Lords intention. This burden on my heart to help pregnant women choose life and get the support they need in shelter and basic needs, has a name pressed into my soul; Joseph House. If the Lord's will, it shall be, as it has it beginning. Please pray for endurance, wisdom, courage, and resources to complete.

    St. Joseph......I prayed to St. Anna to have a baby and I promised that If it was a girl I would name her Anna and if it was a boy, I would name him Joseph after you.

    We adopted our precious son 2 years ago and found it very appropriate to name him after you. When people ask me who we named our son after, i proudly say it is after St. Joseph.

    I feel very close to St. Joseph. I can feel his protection. About 2 to 3 months ago I was looking at a picture and felt his fatherly care for me and my family.

    I enjoyed reading this, and I was impressed by it. I have never prayed to St. Joseph before, but I will now as I struggle in my present job. St. Joseph, hear my prayers.
