Prayers for a house!


Many of our friends and family know that we're looking to by a house this spring.

This is a little bit late, but we're praying a novena to St. Joseph and we'd be delighted if any of you would like to join us in asking for his help.

We're praying the following novena prayer, but if you could just add us to your intentions, that would be more than enough!

Our Father
Hail Mary
Glory Be

St. Joseph, you are the faithful protector and intercessor of all who love and venerate you. I have a special confidence in you. You are powerful with God and will never abandon your faithful servants.

I humbly invoke you and commend myself, with all who are dear to me, to your intercession. By the love you have for Jesus and Mary, do not abandon me during life, and assist me at the hour of my death.

Glorious St. Joseph, spouse of the immaculate Virgin, Foster-father of Jesus Christ, obtain for me a pure, humble, and charitable mind, and perfect resignation to the Divine Will. Be my guide, my father, and my model through life that I may merit to die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

Loving St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, I raise my heart to you to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the Heart of Jesus all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special grace I now implore: that we may find the right house for our family.

Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I am confident that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.

And no, we will not be burying a statue of him upside down anywhere!
