Novena to St. Joseph
From January 14th-January 22nd, Bishop O’Connell has asked all the Faithful and the clergy to pray this Novena Prayer to St. Joseph to End Abortion.
NOVENA TO ST. JOSEPH TO END ABORTION
St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church
and Guardian of the Blessed Virgin Mary and
the Child Jesus, the Son of God whom she
carried in her Immaculate womb:
intercede for us, we pray
that all recourse to abortion
might cease in our nation and our world.
As your cared for Mother and Child,
care for all women who bear the
gift of life in their womb.
May no harm ever endanger them
and may no choice ever threaten the
blessing of human life that God
has created within.
Guard them with your loving protection,
at every moment,
until His will has been fulfilled.
St. Joseph, spouse of Mary and foster father of the Lord,
help us build a culture of life
that yields a civilization of love among us.
Pray the “Our Father,” the “Hail Mary” and the “Glory Be” after the novena prayer.
