Celebrating the Solemnity of St. Joseph!

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph! Many (especially those of Italian heritage) honor him today by wearing red and setting out ‘St. Joseph tables’ with tons of food. Families & friends come together for a huge meal and celebration. Below is a prayer of consecration to San Jose, one of my favorite saints!


Act of Consecration to St. Joseph


O dearest St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor and give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector and my guide in the way of salvation.
Obtain for me a greater purity of heart and fervent love of the interior life.
After your example may I do all my actions for the greater glory of God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death. Amen.

St. Joseph, Ora pro nobis!
