Saint Joseph, Be My Father | Catholic Life

Saint Joseph, Be My Father

Apparently Mary was tired and needed a break, so Joseph took Jesus and filled in for her this day.

Saint Joseph, Loving Father, Perfect Spouse!
Be my father today and teach me to love my spouse in the way that you loved the Blessed Virgin Mother.
Intercede for me that I may accept with patience all the trials of family life and may at last die in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

    I just read the beginning of Matthew for my Bible in 90 Days reading, and your posts about St. Joseph really caused me to focus on Joseph’s role in Jesus’s birth. It’s always so much about Mary and the wise men and Herod, but this time Joseph really stood out to me. We could all learn so much from him. Thank-you for these posts.

    That is great!

    And I’m also quite happy to know that someone is actually reading these. :-)

    My husband was deoigasnd with esophageal cancer in April. He has undergone chemo and radiation therapy. Through this, he has found a true relationship with our Lord Jesus and not just a mental knowledge. For that I am thankful. God has had him in the palm of his hand and he has tolerated this treatment with little side effects although this has not been easy. His last PET scan showed no hot spots or active cancer but it is still recommended that he have surgery to remove his esophagus. He is scared to death despite his faith and prayers. Our hope is that God would perform a healing miracle so that the surgery and life style change would not be necessary. If he should allow this surgery to be performed, we are standing in faith that all will be well and he will be cured. My husband is 58.Due to this disease, my husband was forced to retire; thankfully, he has been approved for disability. These payments will not begin until December and we have taken measures to reduce our financial load. So far, God has blessed us and provided but by my eyes and finite mind, this money will not last past another month or two. I feel maybe it would be best to sell our house, horses, and goats and downsize to a more affordable dwelling which requires less upkeep, time and would allow us more financial stability. I have a high pressure job but thankfully, understanding cohorts have been supportive and tolerant of my absences when necessary. The pressure I feel at this time is overwhelming and I feel myself succumbing at times into a place of just let me hide in a corner and let the world leave me alone. I have asked Jesus to guide me, strengthen me and show me the best course of action and to bless that action and give me the strength to do what I need to do. Please God, help us.In Jesus name.
