On March 19th the Roman Catholic Church honors the spouse of the Virgin Mary and the Patron Saint of the Universal Church. On March 9, 2012 we started a Novena in Thanksgiving to Saint Joseph for the second Anniversary of Always Catholic Blog.The Novena will conclude on the 18th of March the day before our big celebration.
We ask you to join us in this Novena including your own private intentions when praying the Novena. We do ask, for you to remember us to Saint Joseph for our work here at AlwaysCatholicBlog.
Please join us on March 19th starting at 6pm EST through midnight for the celebration of our Second Anniversary. Check back everyday to pray the Novena and for our posts on the upcoming Blogaversary celebration! HINT! Prizes…Writing contest & lots of tunes and yuks on Twitter! (Italians have ALWAYS been allowed a party on Saint Joseph’s Day during Lent…)
Sancta Ioseph, Ora pro nobis!
O blessed Joseph,
to whom it was given not only to see
and to hear that God whom many kings longed to see and saw not;
to hear and heard not;
but also to carry Him in your arms,
to embrace Him, to clothe Him,
and to guard and defend Him,
come to our assistance and intercede with Him
to look favorably on our present petition.
