Year of St. Joseph
On December 8th, Pope Francis inaugurated a year dedicated to St. Joseph to commemorate the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph's dedication as Universal Patron of the Catholic Church.
To mark this occasion,
Pope Franics issed an Apostolic Letter on St. Joseph
, which I highly encourage everyone to read and to use in your increased devotion to St. Jospeh.
We will begin to plan public devotions to St. Jospeh this year.
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
Also, the Apostolic Penitentiary announced a special
Plenary Indulgence for the Year of St. Joseph.
The plenary indulgence will be granted under the usual conditions (sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion, detachment from sin, and prayer for the Pope’s intentions) to those who participate in the Year of St Joseph in any of the following ways: (Dec 8 2020 - Dec 8 2021)
Meditate for at least 30 minutes on the Lord’s Prayer or take part in a Spiritual Retreat with meditation on St. Joseph
Perform a spiritual or corporal act of mercy following St. Joseph’s example
For families or engaged couples who recite the Holy Rosary together
Entrust your daily work to St. Joseph or ask St. Joseph’s intercession for the unemployed to find dignifying work
Recite the Litany of St. Joseph or any other Prayer to St. Joseph for the persecuted Church and relief of all Christians suffering from persecution
