I have a special place in my heart for St. Joseph. My first child was born on the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker, May 1st. I believe, since that moment, or perhaps even at her conception, St. Joseph started working on me. It was the moment that I found out I was expecting her that I knew there had to be a God.
And I set out to see where I could find Him. I have been praying a novena to Saint Joseph, which ends tomorrow and includes this exceptional litany.
We know that Joseph was, “a righteous man” (Matthew 1:18)
He was a man of faith and trust in God, submitting unquestioning to God’s will.
