(As shared on the website for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Norwich, CT)
“The USCCB has composed this novena to be prayed yearly on March 10-18, the nine days that precede the Solemnity of Saint Joseph on March 19.”
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
The Annunciation to Joseph
As the solemnity of St. Joseph approaches, we recall St. Joseph’s obedience to the angel. “When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the
Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.” (Mt 1:24)
A brief period of silence is observed.
V. I delight to do your will, my God;
R. Your law is in my inner being!
O Foster-father of the Son of God, obtain for us through your divine Son the grace of obedience to the will of the Father.
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.
God bless you!
