Good morning, friends and welcome to my corner of the web on this festive day!
St Joseph's Day and our Holy Father's inaugural mass......
It's pouring and freezing here in our neck of the woods but there's still much to celebrate.
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, throughJesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiviand homage to the most loving of Fathers.Thanks to this site for the lovely photo and prayer.
Here's a shot of the books we'll be reading this afternoon, under blankets and with lit candles nearby:
