Getting to Know Saint Joseph

Usman Malik

Three attributes of St. Joseph all men should imitate.

Learn more about St. Joseph. A great place to start is the encyclical of Leo XIII on devotion to St. Joseph, entitledQuamquam Pluries. Meditate on his life and his interactions with Jesus and Mary. Ask for his intercession. It will make you a better man.
Prayer:
 

"O Joseph, virgin-father of Jesus, most pure spouse of the Virgin Mary, pray every day for us to the same Jesus, the Son of God, that we, being defended by the power of His grace and striving dutifully in life, may be crowned by him at the hour of death. Amen."

PS: If you want to take your devotion to St. Joseph up a notch, you may want to look into the cord of St. Joseph, a knotted rope worn in honor of St. Joseph’s virtues, especially chastity.
