St. Joseph lived his life as a quiet, caring man. He was personally selected from God to be the foster father to Jesus Christ. This nine day novena is a prayer to be said for fathers, by fathers and said especially in March.
Novena to Saint Joseph
Glorious St. Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ! To you I raise my heart and my hands to implore your powerful intercession. Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus the help and the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare. I ask particularly for the grace of a happy death and the special favor I now implore.
[Mention your request here.]
Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel animated with confidence that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
V. O glorious St. Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ, and for the glory of His Name.
R. Hear my prayer o Lord, Amen.
