Novena to Saint Joseph Day 3

St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to you do we raise our hearts and hands, to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the heart of Jesus all the help and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death and the special favor we now implore. 

(Mention your petition.)

Glorious St. Joseph, through the love you had for Jesus and for the glory of His Name, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph assist us in our need. Amen. Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who implored your help and sought your intercession was left unassisted. Full of confidence in your power I fly unto you and beg your protection. Despise not, O Guardian of the Redeemer, my humble supplication, but in your bounty, hear and answer me. Amen.

DAY THREE: Blessed St. Joseph, enkindle in our cold hearts a spark of your charity.May God be always the first and only object of our affections.Keep our souls always in sanctifying grace and,if we should be so unhappy as to lose it,give us the strength to recover it immediately by a sincere repentance.Help us to such a love of our God as will always keep us united to Him. O glorious St. Joseph,through the love you bear to Jesus Christ and for the glory of His name, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions.

Amen. Saint Joseph, pray for us!
