St. Patrick, Bishop
Novena to St. Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Day 8
Dear Family of Mary!
Today is Day 8 of our Novena to St. Joseph! Today we ask St. Joseph to help our families to be holy, that we grow together in holiness. This is essential if we are to help Our Lady. She said to us in 1986:
July 24, 1986 “Dear children! I rejoice because of all of you who are on the way of holiness and I beseech you, by your own testimony help those who do not know how to live in holiness. Therefore, dear children, let your family be a place where holiness is birthed. Help everyone to live in holiness, but especially your own family. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Our Lady still needs us to convert, grow in holiness and convert our families. It is not over yet. Every circumstance can be an invitation to grow in holiness. I suspect the coronavirus is just such a circumstance. Our Lady needs us to help others to convert as well.
Here is a prayer to St. Joseph for our families, that they grow in holiness:
Gracious St Joseph, protect my family and all other families from danger, as you did protect the baby Jesus and His mother from the wrath of king Herod. Pray for us, that we respect, love and care for each other in our family as you were with Mary and Jesus. Help us to be understanding and forgiving towards each other. Most of all St Joseph, bring us closer to Jesus. St Joseph, please pray for our family. Amen
