Saint Joseph Anchor of Families

Saint Joseph Holy Family

…Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:20

In this time of attack on the family Mary and Jesus keep pointing me to Joseph.   This Litany was written to him as the head of the Holy Family.  The writers wish to remain anonymous.

O Most Chaste Saint Joseph, by your yes to the plan of God, you were united to Jesus through Mary, Mediatrix of all Graces.  You were called by God our heavenly Father, through the Holy Spirit, to marriage with the ever-virgin Mary Immaculate and to the adoptive fatherhood of Christ the Son.  We ask O Saint Joseph, terror of demons, Patron of the Universal Church, and anchor of families, that you intercede on our behalf and extend your protection to our own domestic families.  Dispel all fear and confusion. Guard us from the evil one, just as you guarded and protected the Most Holy Family. In particular we ask you to defend us from (state intention here).  Anchor us in the storm so we will be ever united to the Most Holy Trinity just as you are for all eternity.  Guardian Heart, pray for us. We ask this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
