TheMoreOf all the saints, Saint Joseph is probably the most exalted, loved and venerated after the Blessed Mary Virgin. The head of the Holy Family and humble carpenter of Nazareth is given as a role model for Catholic fathers, husbands and workers.

The traditional belief that he died in the loving arms of Jesus and Mary has led him to become the holy patron for a happy death and since 1870 he has officially been the Patron of the Universal Church.The month of March in which the principal Feast of Saint Joseph is observed has been consecrated to the saint for more than 200 years.

Pope Leo XIII called this a “salutary practice and very praiseworthy” and encouraged the faithful in countries where the Feast is not a holy day of obligation to “sanctify it as far as possible by private pious practices, in honour of their heavenly patron, as though it were a day of obligation.”In some religious communities and dioceses, it has long been the custom to consecrate each Wednesday to Saint Joseph and to offer Mass on that day in his honour, while in others the nineteenth day of each month is dedicated to the saint and a votive Office and Mass are celebrated on the day.

Yet another practice is to dedicate the first nine Wednesdays in honour of Saint Joseph for a happy death, in a manner similar to the first nine Fridays of the Sacred Heart of his Son.This Kindle book contains a range of traditional devotions to Saint Joseph, including The Thirty Days Prayer to Saint Joseph, the Prayer for the October Devotions ordered by Pope Leo XIII, the Seven Sorrows and Seven Joys of Saint Joseph, the Chaplet of Saint Joseph, the Litany of Saint Joseph approved by Saint Pius X, novenas and meditations for the Feast of Saint Joseph on 19 March, prayers for each day of March and a collection of prayers for occasional use.There is an Active Table of Contents with hyperlinks to every prayer in the book.
