         Prayers for Saint Joseph's Intercession 

Novena to Saint Joseph

O glorious St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special favor we now implore (state your petition).

O Guardian of the Word Incarnate, we have confidence that thy prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. Amen.

(Then say the following seven times in honor of the seven sorrows and joys of St. Joseph.)

V. O Glorious St. Joseph! Through thy love for Jesus Christ and for the glory of His Name,

R. Hear our prayers and obtain our petitions.

V. Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

R. Assist us!



Prayer to St. Joseph for the Unemployed

O Saint Joseph, we pray to you for those who are out of work, for those who want to earn their living or support their families.

You who are the patron of workers; grant that unemployment may vanish from our ranks; that all those who are ready to work may put their strength and abilities in serving their fellowmen and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers and sisters held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders. Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions. May each and every one have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities, to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood. Grant that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help underprivileged countries. Amen.


Memorare to Saint Joseph

Remember, O most pure Spouse of the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph my beloved patron, that never has it been heard that anyone invoked thy patronage and sought thine aid without being comforted. Inspired by this confidence, I come to thee and fervently commend myself to thee. Ah, despise not my petition, dear Foster Father of our Redeemer, but accept it graciously. Amen.





      Miraculous Prayer to St. Joseph in Any Urgent Need

This Miraculous Prayer from the 16th century has brought help to many in their hours of greatest need. Jesus listened to St. Joseph while on earth and still listens to him now when he intercedes for our needs.


A Special Prayer to St. Joseph

The Prayer is over 1900's Years Old

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, assist me by thy powerful intercession and obtain for me all spiritual blessings through thy foster Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord, so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer thee my thanksgiving and homage.

O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee and Jesus asleep in thine arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Amen

St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me. (Mention your Request)

(Say daily in the morning for nine consecutive days for whatever you desire).

The following information regarding the Special Prayer to St. Joseph is published in The Pieta Prayer Booklet and reprinted here on our site for your own personal discernment:

The prayer was found in the 50th year of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the 1500's it was sent by the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. It is said that whoever shall read this prayer or take it with them, shall never die a sudden death or be drowned, nor shall poison take effect on them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy, or shall be burned in any fire or shall be overpowered in battle.


Please take note: The Saint Joseph prayer and promise is published inThe Pieta Prayer Booklet. The booklet is published by Miraculous Lady of the Roses, 1186 Burlington Drive, Hickory Corners, Michigan, 49060.

Facebook has not responded regarding our account being Hacked and our News Feed Blocked!

Urgent Request: Please support our ministry by spreading the news and contacting Facebook regarding this matter!

(The Facebook matter is a separeate issue and does not affect visitors using resources on our website

On Sunday, March 18, 2018, I received two emails from Facebook Security that someone unauthorized changed the password and then accessed/hacked our Facebook account. About 10 minutes prior to this happening, a Facebook message indicated they required updated information to verify our account and password. I found it suspicious. However, the Facebook logo and instructions and corresponding link appeared legit. It was obviously a set up and a deliberate attempt to remove our Facebook page and make changes to our account. Moreover, as soon as I completed some of the information requested by Facebook, their message also disappeared. Also removed is communication sent by Facebook messenger which included ad approvals on our posts. Is our stored credit card information compromised as well? Very serious matter; whose actually responsible for our account being hacked? No explanation yet from Facebook! 

However, in the process of following their instructions, Facebook blocked our newsfeed and access to our pages.

Foremost, this action is a deliberate attempt to undermine our ministry and may altogether be a result of anti-Catholic and anti-Christian sentiment seen on Facebook.

As the administrator of our news feed, I'm shocked at the lack of professionalism by Facebook to resolve this matter in light of the fact that we are paying to advertise on their site.

Can you believe Facebook has no customer service phone number? 

It's upsetting that Facebook has not responded to my communication except by auto-response, it's a general message sent to everyone seeking support.

If you're a fan, subscribe or follow our news feed for "" then please contact Facebook and report this issue in the Help & Support section under: Report a Problem, Something Isn’t Working.

With over 500,000 fan likes on "", my concern is that other Facebook pages which focus on religious topics can be targeted as well.

This issue cannot be ignored by Facebook's security department and management!

Thank you very much for helping to resolve this matter by contacting Facebook on behalf of and reporting that our news feed and page is blocked and for its restoration.

The Story of Mr. Loci B. Lenar and His Fatima Related Mission

A devout Catholic, Loci B. Lenar shares his faith in Jesus and his love for the Blessed Mother. His story has remarkable connections to Our Lady of Fátima and the future Era of Peace that she promised during her Church-approved apparitions of 1917. Today, Mr. Lenar shares his faith through multiple venues, including his popular website, This book is written by Catholic author, Claire Smith.

Jesus Carries His Cross

Lent is a time to reflect on our spiritual journey with God. It's a time of prayer and reconciliation. The cross is a reminder of Jesus' love for us by sacrificing His life for the salvation of sinners. Lent leads us into Holy Week and Good Friday, followed by the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday.

While visiting The National Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, Warren County, New Jersey - Mr. Loci B. Lenar photographed two statues that are part of the Stations of the Cross next to the Holy House with his iPhone 6. The shrine is part of the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA.

A band of sunlight is creating the appearance of a cross on the statue of Jesus. It's more than coincidental that the photograph shows Jesus carrying his cross.

In two separate areas, Mr. Lenar's photos show sunlight creating similar rays of light around two statues of Jesus.

A larger photograph can be viewed on our Facebook page.

God the Father, we join together in prayer and petition heaven for divine intervention to mitigate earthquakes and natural disasters throughout the world.

We invoke the powerful name of Jesus to calm the storms of time and to bring forth a millennium of peace and tranquility.

We pray to the Virgin Mary to interecede on behalf of Humanity for God's hand of mercy to bless us with divine protection.

Please join in by reciting the prayer daily.

Angelic Tails: True Stories of Heavenly Canine Companions

This new book is by author Joan Wester Anderson, renown for writing books on angelic visitations and miracles.

The following excerpt is from Loyola Press: Angelic Tails is a collection of down-to-earth true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels—from the story of a former Air Force colonel whose golden retrievers served as his heavenly helpers in the Colorado wilderness to the account of St. John Bosco, who, for more than 30 years, was protected by an angelic dog as he walked the dangerous city streets. In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is evidence that God can use even muddy paws and cold noses to fulfill his purposes in our world.

Miraculous Photo: Shield of Archangel Michael

In August of 2005, a Cross of Light appeared for the first time on Mr. Lenar's backyard fence in Mine Hill, New Jersey, USA.  The same bright cross has subsequently appeared every year from 2005 to 2013 during Lent and Holy Week. Loci Lenar says that Fr. Richard Tartaglia has confirmed this phenonmena by visiting his home several times and photographing the sign in 2012 and 2013. 

Fr. Tartaglia spoke about this sign in his Homily during a prayer service held at St. Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. For more details on this story, please visit the Homepage on this site.

Where Miracles Happen

Commentary by Loci B. Lenar

Joan Wester Anderson and her updated book, Where Miracles Happen, is inspiring and touched my soul with God's spiritual presence. While reading Part One: Miracles through Prayer, I was captivated in the story, A Light in Her Life. The inspiring story with added illustrations is posted on our blog at the following link: Angels Wonders, and Miracles of Faith.  Visit our Homepage  for my thoughts on Joan's new book.

Pray for World Peace

Please pray daily to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to change the course of history into an era of peace.  Also pray the Holy Rosary and request the Blessed Mother to intercede on behalf of humanity.

During her 1917 apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady of Fatima foretold of an era of peace.  For information connecting her message to scripture, please read Revelation 20:1-3,  A Thousand-year Reign of God's Peace.

Divine Mercy Prayer

The Lord's blessing and grace flows through the recitation of The Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  Pray daily or in time of need!
