Today is a special day for me....it is the Feast Day of St. Joseph! So even though I am in an other state, working 14 hours a day (well 16 today), and it is 20 or so degrees outside I found the Cathederal on the way to work. As luck would have it, I walked in at mass time! I noted the Bishop was moving along briskly. So I then attended mass AND got to work on time!
Today was the funeral for the cousins lost last week in childbirth. One of the children's middle name was Joseph as well. So I lit a candle for the children, and asked this great saint to look out for them on the path to heaven. Just before leaving I said our Blue Knight St. Joseph prayer....
Dear St. Jospeh
Who took such good care of the baby Jesus and blessed mother Mary.
Be our protector to.
Guide us on the path that is safe and sure, all the way to heaven.
