ARTIST: Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS


I have always had great affection for St. Joseph.

We need his gentle strength more than ever in these challenging and anxious days in our church, nation, and world.
—Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS

O Glorious St. Joseph, you were chosen by God to be the reputed father of Jesus, the most pure Spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, and Head of the Holy Family. You have been chosen by Christ's Vicar as the heavenly Patron and Protector of the Church founded by Christ.

Therefore, with the greatest confidence I implore your powerful assistance for the whole Church. Protect, with true fatherly love, the Sovereign Pontiff and all the bishops and priests in communion with the See of Peter. Be the protector of all who labor for souls amid the trials and tribulations of this life. Amen.

His feast day is March 19.

Prayer to Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church

O Glorious Saint Joseph,
Patron of the Universal Church,
I implore thee to obtain
from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
the preservation of our remnant
Catholic Community and all its members,
from all division, dissension and discord.

Do thou, faithful Guardian of the Holy Family,
grant that our spiritual family, all the members
of our remnant Catholic Community,
shall ever be united in the Bonds of Faith and Charity,
and shall remain always of One Heart, Mind and Soul
in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Saint Joseph, special Protector of our Community,
do thou guide, bless and protect us against the attacks,
of all our enemies and detractors.

Through Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who lives and reigns with the Father
and the Holy Ghost, One God,
forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.
