Here is a short Novena to St. Joseph to be recited from March 10th to March 18th. Let us pray this Novena as we prepare for the the Feast of St. Joseph.
O good father Joseph! I beg you, by all your sufferings, sorrows and joys, to obtain for me what I ask.
(Mention your Petition)
Obtain for all those who have asked my prayers everything that is useful to them in the plan of God. Be near to me in my last moments, that I may eternally sing the praises of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Amen.
