Novena to St. Joseph

Today begins the nine-days of intensive prayer to Saint Joseph, the foster-father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the patron and protector of fathers and of families, and of the dying. The month of March is dedicated to Saint Joseph. With the bleak economic forecast, it might be a good idea to seek the intercession of the man who provided for the material needs of Jesus and Mary. His intercession is powerful; all those who have experienced his intervention know what I am talking about. Really, he will help in any dire situation. I love Saint Joseph. Don Marco offers some beautiful prayers in honor of this most compassionate of saints. Here is another little prayer as well:
Dear Saint Joseph, you who have the power to render possible that which seems impossible, come to our aid in our present trouble and distress. Take this important and difficult affair under your particular protection that it may end happily.

Dear Saint Joseph, all our confidence is in you. Let it not be said we have invoked you in vain. Since you are so powerful with Jesus and Mary, show that your goodness equals your power.

Divine Providence did provide.

Divine Providence can provide.
Divine Providence will provide. Amen.

Elena...this is very providential that you posted this. St. Joseph has been a great aid in a recent situation in our family. I will certainly join in the novena.
