Novena to St Joseph The Custodian – Ninth Day

St. Joseph was a carpenter by trade who surely made furniture and agricultural tools for the small town of Nazareth, the city in which he and Mary settled after marriage. In a dream, an angel told St.

Joseph that Mary was to have a son by the power of the Holy Spirit and that he would be called Jesus. Only weeks before the birth of the son, St. Joseph traveled with Mary to Bethlehem to register for the census ordered by Caesar Augustus.

It was there that the child was born and his name was Jesus. They returned to Nazareth, where St. Joseph protected Jesus and Mary.

As Jesus grew older, he began to learn carpentry skills from Joseph. St. Joseph was declared patron and protector of the Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX in 1870. He is also the patron saint of parents and workers.

St Joseph Novena Day 9: Be Real, Sincere Catholics like St. Joseph

1. By the Sign of the Cross

By the sign of the cross delivers us from our enemies, you who are our God. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

2. Act de contrition

O, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because of your just punishment, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.

– Ask here for the grace you wish to attain –

3. Preliminary Prayer

O most glorious Father of Jesus, Spouse of Mary. Patriarch and Protector of the Holy Church, to whom the Eternal Father entrusted the care of governing, governing and defending the Holy Family on earth; protect us too, who belong as faithful Catholics, from the holy family of your Son, which is the Church, and obtain for us the goods necessary for this life, and above all the spiritual help for eternal life.

Obtain for us especially these three graces: Never committing any mortal sin, especially against chastity; a sincere love and devotion to Jesus and Mary; and a good death, receiving the last Sacraments well.

Grant also the special grace that we ask each one in this novena. Amen.


St Joseph Novena Day 9:

To be true and sincere Catholics like St. Joseph

O most benign Jesus, just as you have chosen through your Vicar on earth your beloved father as protector of your Holy Catholic Church, so we humbly beseech you, through the intercession of St. Joseph, to grant us that we may be true and sincere Catholics, that we may profess without error the Catholic faith, that we may live without fear a life worthy of the faith we profess, and that enemies may never terrify us with persecutions, nor with deceit seduce us, and that we may depart from the one true religion which is the Catholic.


4. Final Prayer

O custodian and father of Virgins Saint Joseph to whose faithful custody were entrusted the same innocence of Christ Jesus and the Virgin of the virgins Mary; for these two very dear garments Jesus and Mary, I beg you and beg you to reach me, that preserved from all impurity, I always serve chastely with clean soul, pure heart and chaste body to Jesus and Mary. Amen.

  • Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, I give you my heart and my soul
  • Jesus, Joseph, and Mary Assist me in my last agony.
  • Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, May my soul rest in peace with you.
  • Our Father: Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
  • Hail Mary: Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
  • Glory be: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was, in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. He had the same Jesus, at the beginning of his public life, about thirty years old, son, according to what was thought of Joseph.

  • V. St. Joseph, pray for us.
  • R. That we may be worthy to fulfill the promises of Jesus Christ.

5. Prayer

O God that with ineffable providence you deign to choose the Blessed Joseph by the husband of your Blessed mother; Grant that, as we venerate him as a protector on Earth, we deserve to have him as the protector in the heavens. O God you live and reign in the centuries of the centuries. Amen.
