Description

The feast of St. Joseph is March 19.  After the Blessed Virgin Mary, he is the greatest Saint of all time.  This year, 2022, the Knights of Columbus announced the selection of an icon of St. Joseph holding the Child Jesus as the centerpiece of this year’s K of C prayer program.  Our Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites was blessed to have a copy of this traveling icon with us during our Holy Hour.  Deacon Baldwin gave us a presentation on this icon and what it signifies.  St. Joseph was highly esteemed by St. Teresa of Avila, the foundress of the Discalced Carmelites.  So we were overjoyed to ponder him anew.  And so, with Deacon Baldwin, we “go to St. Joseph.”

Here is the prayer on the back of the prayer card of the image of St. Joseph from the Knights of Columbus:


Patris Corde Prayer


Hail, guardian of the Redeemer,


Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


To you God entrusted his only Son;


In you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.


 


Blessed Joseph, to us too,


Show yourself a father


And guide us in the path of life.


Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,


And defend us from every evil.  Amen.
