Wednesdays are customarily designated for Votive Masses of St. Joseph.
Lately, because of upheaval in life, I entrusted my material challenges to St. Joseph. In the past, St. Joseph has come through for me such concrete ways that I was left with no doubt that it was his intercession which helped me. Lately, I have had another, similar experience.
I am thanking St. Joseph in a special way today. I sang his Litany after Holy Mass. I also thought that a good way to thank him would be to help to spread devotion to him. The best way I can think to do that, other than my testimony above, is to clue you in about a marvelous book:
Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father by Fr. Donald Calloway
St. Joseph is a mighty intercessor. I’ve been blessed several times by his help in times of real need and stress. I have zero doubt that he was the one who intervened, so concretely that it’s amusing.
I wonder if perhaps he also didn’t tug a little at some of your hearts when you lately signed up to help me though donations. I wouldn’t doubt it.
I would be delighted were some of you, also, to become attached to St. Joseph through learning more about him and devotion to him. Fr. Calloway’s book is a great way to start.
It would also be a good gift your your priests. This book also teaches about being men. We need that in these times.
