The Feast of St. Joseph

A man of honor. Matt. 1:19

A worthy, modified, re-run post from last year. H/T to Fr. Ike.

March 19th is the Feast of St. Joseph, one of the heroes of our Church who -- prior to the "liturgical vandalism" following Vatican II -- used to have a statue in every Catholic church and whose feast, unfortunately, gets oversdhadowed by the continued secularization of St. Patrick's day. Lest you forget to honor him this Monday, take a few moments to say the following:

Litany of St. Joseph
God the Father of Heaven, have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God the Holy Spirit, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, One God, have mercy on us.
Holy Mary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Noble son of the House of David, pray for us.
Husband of the Mother of God, pray for us.
Most chaste spouse, pray for us.
Guardian of the Virgin, pray for us.
Foster father of the Son of God, pray for us.
Faithful guardian of Christ, pray for us.

Model of workers, pray for us.
Patron of carpenters and woodworkers, pray for us.
Guardian of virgins, pray for us.
Pillar of family life, pray for us.
Comfort of the troubled, pray for us.
Hope of the sick, pray for us.
Patron of a happy death, pray for us.
Terror of evil spirits, pray for us.
Protector of the Church, pray for us.

"Liturgical vandalism"... bah I prefer to discribe it as the Iconoclasm of the 20th century.
