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.  This is a second version that has the approval of our Diocese.

you guarded and protected the Most Holy Family. In particular we ask you to

will be ever united to the Most Holy Trinity just as you are for all eternity. 

Guardian Heart of Saint Joseph, pray for us. 
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
