VARIOUS PRAYERS AND INSTRUCTIONS
ROSARY IN HONOUR OF ST. JOSEPH




ROSARY IN HONOUR OF ST. JOSEPH

On the Crucifix:

O Lord, in order to HONOUR St. Joseph as he deserves, You have taken him body and soul to Heaven to Crown him with glory, thus signifying to the world, both visible and invisible, that You have made Joseph your foster-father, the supreme steward of all Your possessions.

 

On the Large Beads:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may find aid in the merits of the Spouse of Thy Most Holy Mother, so that what we cannot obtain by ourselves may be given us through his intercession, who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God forever and ever. Amen.

 

On Small Beads:

Hail Joseph, Son of David, thou whose holiness surpasses that of all angels and saints, blessed art thou amongst men, thou who wert chosen to be the Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary of whom was born Jesus.

Glorious Saint Joseph, now reigning body and soul in Heaven, protector of the Universal Church, pray for us poor sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

THIS ROSARY is about 200 years old. The Church, has taught that "lasting peace" will triumph in the world once St. Joseph is truly known and truly loved. He was Our Lord's Protector, and never would have permitted His crucifixion had God allowed him to remain on earth. His Body, like the Blessed Virgin Mary's, was assumed into Heaven, thus completing the Three on earth and now in Heaven, Jesus, Mary, and St. Joseph.

 

IT IS REQUESTED that all undertake to widely spread and make known the Rosary in Honor of St. Joseph.
