Nine Days to Joseph: Day Five

Day Five - St. Joseph, Who Did God's Will
Dear St. Joseph,

You did God's will. Dare I say you did it perfectly? Saint Joseph, I want to also do God's most perfect will. But on my own, I will fail. I need your help. I trust that with you as my spiritual father, you will guide me to always do God's most perfect will. Truly, St. Joseph, I want to reach the degree of glory that God has prepared for me in heaven. I want to bear fruit that will last. I don't want to let God down. I want to be a saint. Help me, St. Joseph. You see how weak and sinful I am. But teach me, good father. Help me to follow the commandments and please make my heart sensitive to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. I know that as I entrust myself to your care, you will guide me and show me how to always do God's will. I give you permission to redirect the stream of my life if it ever departs from God's most perfect will.

Saint Joseph, who did God's will, please always keep me in God's most perfect will.

If you haven't yet made your Marian consecration, consider using Fr. Gaitley's book 33 Days to Morning Glory to do so. Also, we invite you to make a total consecration to the Father through Jesus using Fr. Gaitley's 33 Days to Greater Glory: A Total Consecration to the Father through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John.

As we look forward to celebrating the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven on Aug. 15, I wish to share a witticism I once read regarding Mary’s Assumption. The reason Mary was assumed, body and soul, into Heaven was because she always took herself so lightly.

By his devotion to Our Lady, St. Robert Bellarmine (1542-1641) was made into a powerful tool in the hands of Our Immaculate Queen.

To celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows Sept. 15, we look at how Our Sorrowful Mother shows us how to benefit from life's unavoidable pain.
