St. Joseph Altar

Catholic Culture: Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19. Has recipes, prayers, history of the altar and table…lots of information. Includes a Novena to St. Joseph from Mary Reed Newland:

Our family has added a prayer we have had tucked away in an Irish prayer book for a long time, written in handwriting Granny Newland cannot identify, but it must have belonged to one of the cousins or aunts. We think it is as beautiful as any prayer to St. Joseph that we have ever heard.

O glorious St. Joseph, spouse of the Immaculate Virgin, obtain for me a pure, humble and charitable mind, and perfect resignation in the Divine Will. Be my guide, father and model through life that I may merit to die as thou didst, in the arms of Jesus and Mary. Amen.

    I’m excited to try a St. Joseph altar (an adapted one likely) this year.
