From a Catholic perspective, Saint Joseph is a powerful intercessor who can help us in many ways. He is the patron saint of the Universal Church, families, fathers, expectant mothers, travelers, immigrants, house sellers and buyers, craftsmen, engineers, and working people in general.
Some of the ways that Saint Joseph can help us include:
- Protecting our families. Saint Joseph is the protector of the Holy Family, and he can help us to protect our own families from harm. He can help us to be good parents, to provide for our families’ needs, and to keep our families safe.
- Obtaining favors for us. Saint Joseph is known for his powerful intercession, and he can help us to obtain favors from God. If we are struggling with a particular problem, we can ask Saint Joseph to help us.
- Guiding us in our faith. Saint Joseph is a model of faith and obedience, and he can help us to grow in our own faith. He can help us to trust in God’s plan for our lives, and to follow God’s will.
- Preparing us for death. Saint Joseph is the patron of a happy death, and he can help us to prepare for our own death. He can help us to make peace with God, and to die in a state of grace.
If you are looking for help in any of these areas, I encourage you to pray to Saint Joseph. He is a powerful intercessor who can help us in many ways.
Here is a prayer to Saint Joseph that you can pray that “Is never known to fail”
O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires.
O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him close in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen.
