Please Join Us in our Novena Prayer to
Once again as St. Joseph’s feast day draws near, it brings us joy to invite you to join us in our novena. Joseph’s inner goodness, his faith, trust, and life-long generous fidelity to the will of God, attract and inspire us. He knew anguish, uncertainty, confusion and suffering in difficult and bewildering circumstances. He is most assuredly a saint for our times.
Joseph, the one God chose to be the husband of Mary and earthly father of Jesus, lovingly guarded and shielded the family at Nazareth with wise and watchful, strong and gentle care. He now cares for the Church, the Body of Christ, for each of us.
Go to Joseph. In times of anxiety, doubt or discouragement, he is always there for us. Call on him for support and guidance. St. Francis de Sales testifies that with Joseph “the impossible becomes possible.”
Know that we carry you in our hearts and prayers, as we entrust you to the care of this great Saint.
With our love and gratitude,
Your Carmelite Sisters
