We may not be able to go there ourselves, but we can give a few minutes in the morning to ask and pray for help.
I watched my wife play at Carnegie Hall in New York City two weeks ago. I said hello and we talked about how incredible the venue looked.
At some point, I asked, “Do you have someone performing here tonight?
O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. When he’s not revising and editing, he is often found studying and writing about GK Chesterton, Religion and Literature, or random points of local history. You can find him blogging at Catholic Coffee Drinkers or find him on Twitter @mjordanlichens or facebook.
Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.
This time, I was praying for what felt like a miracle to me. The first day of the Novena I had two interviews and prayed it faithfully every morning as I continued to look for work.
The very ninth day of the novena I got a call with a job offer with just enough compensation to start paying my rent again.Joseph is there to listen like a patient father and to intercede for you to God, the greatest of Fathers.If you don’t have a pressing need, I have one idea.They, our brothers and sisters in Christ, are suffering in ways we can’t imagine.Now, if you will join me, is the time to pray to St.If you’d like to start the novena tomorrow, I encourage you to think of some great need for yourself or others.
