Nine Days to Joseph: Day Two

Day Two - St. Joseph, Loving Spouse of Mary
Dear St. Joseph,

I'm thinking about the angel's words to you, "Do not be afraid to take Mary for your wife" (Mt 1:20). Saint Joseph, you weren't afraid. You trusted God. And now you truly are the husband of Mary. After Jesus, you are the dearest person to her heart! Well, St. Joseph, as my spiritual father, I now ask you to speak to Mary about me, about my life. If you kindly adopt me as your spiritual child, then I know all the more that Mary will take me to her heart as well. Both of you truly are my spiritual parents. And just as any good father wants to see his children love their mother, I know that you will help me to know and love my spiritual mother more. By your powerful prayers, I ask you to help me realize what a gift I have in Mary. Pray for me that I will better appreciate her motherly role in my life. Saint Joseph, I know that you love her. I know it makes you happy to see her children love her with all their hearts. Therefore, as I prepare to consecrate myself totally to your fatherly care, I give you permission - in fact, I'm pleading with you: Help me to appreciate my Mother Mary even more.

Saint Joseph, Loving Spouse of Mary, please help me to love my spiritual mother even more.

Consecration

 

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.

Commercials and the media would have us think the Christmas season begins the day after Thanksgiving. Nope.
