*St. Joseph Feast Day..........March 19

How we wish we could learn more about St. Joseph, husband of Mary and foster-father to Jesus.
But Scripture has left us with the most important knowledge: who he was --
"a righteous man".

Matthew 1:18

St. Joseph, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, please pray for my mom. Amen.

What a great day! My patron and Father's Feast Day.

Words of Our Lady to Ven. Mary of Agreda:
"The children of the world are ignorant regarding the privileges and rights which the Most High has conferred on my holy spouse, and the power of his intercession with the Divine Majesty and with me. But I assure you, my daughter, that in Heaven he is most intimate with the Lord, and has great power to avert the punishment of Divine justice from sinners. In all trials seek his intercession, because the Heavenly father will grant whatever my spouse asks."

Many Thanks for this "Gem" of a card! It really brought a lot of joy to my spirit this evening. I am most grateful to Our Heavenly Father for the gift of my devotion to St. Josef. I love the comments left by LoveStJoseph with the words of Our Lady to Ven. Mary of Agreda. Simply beautiful and moving. St. Joseph pray for us and grant us thru your intercession the grace of a Holy Death. John K.

LoveStJoseph - I hope you had a special day with St. Joseph on your special patron saint's day.
Thank you for the words from Ven. Mary of Agreda. How comforting to learn of this power given him. I've always been devoted to St. Joseph. I join another saint who said "Go to St. Joseph, he never fails to answer prayers
