19 March – Feast of St. Joseph

A22St. Joseph is the Co Patron of the Passionist Congregation.

Pope Francis says – “I have a great love of St. Joseph, because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table I have an image of St. Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep he is taking care of the church. Yes! We know that he can do that. So when I have a problem, a difficulty, I write a little note and put it under the sleeping St. Joseph, so that he can dream about it. In other words I tell him: pray for this problem.”

St. Mary MaKillop writes in 1893: “We see in St. Joseph a perfect mirror of confidence in God – a wonderful, unbounded confidence in our good God.”


We pray that like St. Joseph we will relieve suffering and bring hope to those around us.

We pray for parents, especially those bringing up children alone.

We pray for families made refugees by discrimination, wars and natural disasters.
