"Would that I could persuade all men to be devoted to this glorious Saint [St. Joseph],
Here we go again... every year, in March, I like to pay special honor to St. Joseph, the foster-father of our Lord by praying a 9-day novena leading up to his Feast Day on March 19th... and I'd also like to invite readers to join me in this special prayer-exercise beginning tomorrow, March 11th, and ending on St. Joseph's Feast.
Trust me - St. Joseph's intercession is awesome before the throne of his Divine Son... so I am re-posting a Novena Prayer to him that I've posted for the last three years (see below). My hope is that on the Feast Day, many others will have a deeper admiration for this illustrious Saint and perhaps an answered prayer request, too.
I will be praying it diligently, not just for my personal needs, but also for the needs of family; friends; and the readers of this blog (you). Feel free to post prayer intentions in the Comment Section below. I will pray for them and I ask others who make this novena to also pray in spiritual union with the others praying it, too; for other peoples' needs and intentions. It will be powerful!**
** TIP: For this novena - any prayer - to be successful, there must be a measure of faith; a belief that God, in his infinite goodness, can answer our prayer. Without faith, prayer has no power.

|One of St. Colette's reported miracles - the raising|
of a dead nun to life.
|Another miracle of St. Colette - walking across|
a river in Neublan, France, with her retinue.
In the town of Verey, Colette was once a guest of the local Dominican nuns and she cured one of their members of leprosy by giving her a compassionate embrace... and still more remarkable, in October 1421, during one of her many missionary travels through France, Colette was witnessed miraculously crossing a river on foot in Neublan (Jura), along with her entourage of priests and nuns!
