My friend, that which you seek from Joseph ca
n only be found in Jesus Christ.


Would that I could persuade all men to be devoted to this glorious Saint [St. Joseph],

"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ."
Paul in 2 Cor. 11

"I am saying this for your own good,... that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord."

Paul in 1 Cor 7


It is now very many years since I began asking him for something o­n his feast, and I have always received it.

"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it." –
Jesus in John 14


The children of the world are ignorant regarding the privileges and rights which the Most High has conferred o­n my holy spouse, and the power of his intercession with the Divine Majesty and with me.

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Paul in  Rom 8


the condemned will weep bitterly for not having realized how powerful and efficacious a means of salvation they might have had in the intercession of St. Joseph,

Jesus… is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them."
Paul in Heb 7

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. –
Peter in Acts 4


All Christians regard him as the advocate of the dying who had honored him during their life

"My little children... we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:"
John the Divine in1 John 2


because St. Joseph has obtained special power against the evil spirits, who tempt us with redoubled vigor at the hour of death.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Paul in Rom 8


the assistance given St. Joseph at his death by Jesus and Mary obtained for him the right to secure a holy and peaceful death for his servants.

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Paul in Rom 8

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!
Paul in Rom 5

He who despises the word will be destroyed,
But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
Proverbs 13
