Saint Joseph's year
From December 8, 2020, the Pope has announced a special year for Saint Joseph.
It happened on the day 150 years after Decreto Qumadmodum Deus, in which Blessed Pio IX declares Saint Joseph the patron saint of the Catholic Church. It is an opportunity to immerse himself in his life.
Now begins the new year 2021 as it is announced to St. Joseph.
Our thoughts and actions can find role models in the life of Saint Joseph. It is important that we learn from him.
We have just celebrated the Birth of Jesus, and we have heard how Joseph came together with Mary. Families and communities have a lot to learn. We can say a lot, but we must all figure out what we can do to fulfill our duties and enjoy our rights.
I want to share a prayer:
To you, Holy Joseph, we take refuge in our distress.
And we ask for your protection.
For the sake of love, which made you one with the Mother of God, The spotless virgin. And for the sake of the fatherly love with which you embraced the baby Jesus.
We ask you: Look graciously down to the precious heirloom that Jesus Christ has purchased with his precious blood.
Come to our aid with your mighty intercession. You, the holy protector, secure protector and faithful support. Watch over us, the chosen people of Jesus Christ.
Take away from us, loving father, all delusion and depravity. Stand by us, you our strong protector, in our fight against the power of darkness, and just as you once saved the baby Jesus from the ultimate danger of life, so now defend the Holy Church of God against all enemy attacks and intentions. Take us into your protection so that by your example and with your help we can live a holy life, die a blessed death and attain eternal bliss in heaven.
pray for us.
