Novena to Saint Joseph - Day 9 -


O good Saint Joseph, help us to be like thee,
gentle to those whose weakness leans on us;
help us to give to those who seek our aid,
succor that they may journey unafraid.
Give us thy faith,
that we may see the right shining above the victories of might.
Give us thy hope that we may stand secure,
untouched by doubting, steadfast to endure.
Give us thy love that as the years increase
an understanding heart may bring us peace.
Give us thy purity that the hour of death
finds us untouched by evil’s breath.
Give us thy love of labor
that we shirk no lot in life that calls us for honest work.
Give us thy love of poverty so that we live contented,
let wealth come or go.
Give us thy courage that we may be strong;
give us thy meekness to confess our sins.
Give us thy patience that we may possess the kingdom
of our souls without distress.
Help us, dear Saint,
to live that when life ends
we pass with thee to Jesus and His friends.
O Glorious Saint Joseph,
hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Amen.

Saint Joseph, pray for us!
