Description: Using this novena consecration you will attach yourself to Saint Joseph to learn from him as your spiritual father, that you may grow in holiness. You can also consecrate your loved ones and your parish and the world to Saint Joseph, that they may learn from their troubles what Father God is teaching them, and to turn away from sin, turn to Christ, and embrace the Holy Eucharist.
Also available in Spanish.
Each day contains a brief story about various apparitions of Saint Joseph, with special prayers.
With this consecration, you will seal yourself as Saint Joseph’s child. You will place into his fatherly protection yourself, your family, jobs and ministries, and the Church. We will also consecrate to his fatherhood those who are not following Christ, especially your own family members, because Saint Joseph’s desire in heaven is that all of his children love his son, Jesus, and follow him to everlasting life.
Print this double-sided and fold to create a 22-page booklet (6 sheets of paper).
