st. joseph novenaSt. Joseph is a powerful patron. He is, as John Paul II called him, the Guardian of the Redeemer. He humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family. Therefore, St. Joseph’s intercession has been sought for centuries.

St. Joseph was clearly very close to our Lord and so we come to him with this novena with a sense of humility because of his great humility.

There are actually a few different feast days for Saint Joseph, but March 19th has been most celebrated as his feast day in Western Christianity. But of course, you can pray a novena to him anytime.

St. Joseph Answers Prayers

I started this novena a month and a half after my husband was released from his job. He had one interview but no job offers. Thankfully on the 7th day, he received a job offer and starts his new job and career a week from tomorrow. Thank you St. Joseph and the Lord for hearing my prayers!

Thanks be to God through the intercession of St. Joseph!!! The contract for our new house was signed today on St. Joseph’s feast day…the day after I finished the novena!

More About St. Joseph

Most of everything we know about Saint Joseph comes from Scripture. There is some disagreement about his genealogy, but both Mark and Matthew say his descent is from David, the greatest king of Israel — and yet, he was a very humble, working man. He was a carpenter.

It is said that it was probably in Nazareth that St. Joseph was betrothed to and married Mary. After discovering that Mary was pregnant, also after their betrothal, he knew that the child was not his – and as such, he had planned on divorcing her quietly.

However, an angel came to him in a dream and told him that the child Mary was carrying was the son of God. Immediately upon hearing this, Joseph took Mary as his wife.

The angel came a second time to tell him his family was in danger, and he also reacted immediately by leaving everything behind him — his family, friends, and all that he owned — to go to Egypt with Mary and their newborn baby, Jesus.

There is a lot we don’t know about St. Joseph, but we do know that he loved Jesus as his own son, he respected God and he was a righteous man. (Matthew 1:18)

  67. I have been a hair stylist for 25 years now and I’m ready to advance in my career. I asked for prayers to either be able to have my own shop, or do some kind of management in a salon. I’ve worked for a salon called Premier Cuts that was owned by an elderly man who I believe is ready to retire and I would really like the opportunity to take over the salon God willing and make it succeed with God’s help. I have two girls in college and we live in California is very expensive so i really need to do something to succeed or a career change that will help me to achieve my goals and dreams that I’ve been praying for and asking for in prayer to be heard and granted. My current job is very stressful since we have quotas to meet to achieve the company’s goals . Sometimes these goals are very hard to reach and it makes it very miserable to go to work. I have been in the industry for a long time and I have a lot of experience and knowledge doing what I do. This is why I really would like to either have my own salon, or manage a successful salon. If God feels that this industry is no longer for me I ask you to pray that God leads me to the right job, the right people that will open opportunities for me to succeed in another type of Industry. I don’t want to waste my time doing something that isn’t going to be fruitful in my life and that isn’t bringing me happiness, joy, and success. Can you please pray for me to be able to succeed in my hopes, dreams,wants and desires with God’s guidance of course. I continue to pray for a bigger house to own that my husband and I can afford because we have outgrown the one we live in. I asked St Joseph and the Holy family for help to accomplish my dreams. I’m also asking for prayers for my nephew Adrian curiel who’s losing function on his left arm to be cured and for his health to be restored as well as everyone who’s suffering from some kind of ailment. Thank you

Please St. Joseph, intercede for us that God will make a way as we have been praying for this for so many long years.

Grant that Your Divine Assistance remains with them always. Please always adequately fund all of Your seminarians without delay. Thank You for the many Holy sincere priests You have given to us. Lord Jesus, thru the intercession of St. Joseph & all the angels & saints of Heaven, please intercede that all of us come back & be in full Union with Christ and His Church before it is too late. Protect Christ’s Church from the snares and traps Satan has set for all members & priests , and all of us. Please intercede perpetually that Rosa S. and those like her and the ‘dreamers’ are allowed to stay here in the U.S. and become citizens if they wish to do so.
