We have started a Novena to St. Joseph, which we do every year for the intentions of: a) God’s blessing on our community & b) vocations to this community, and I wondered if some of you maight like to join us. If so this is the prayer we are saying at Vespers…….
Almighty God, you have chosen St. Joseph to be the mainstay of Jesus and Mary, the wise and faithful servant in whom they could trust. We pray that he may truly be the guardian of your Church; that he may inspire with confidence those who are devoted to him; that he may give security to those who work in the vineyard of your Son; and finally that he may be asource of strength to us, who wish, like him, to dedicate ourselves to Chrsit’s service now and in times to come. AMEN.
We started this yesterday (a day late mind you) and so will finish on 20th March the eve of the feast of St. Benedict.
