October is Respect Life Month!
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
St. Joseph, humble servant of God,
entrusted to care and protect mother & child,
we ask for your intercession as we strive to care
for expecting mothers and their unborn children,
help us to protect the most vulnerable in our society and those whose lives are threatened.
Most valiant and obedient St. Joseph give us the courage to do God’s will.
Help us to live lives of holiness. Keep us faithful to all that is true, do not allow us to be misled by ignorance or corrupted fear.
Give us courage and strength as we work to build a culture
that cherishes and protects every human life.
St Joseph, defender of life, pray for us.
Join Embracing the Beginning of Life Rosary at Holy Family every third Tuesday in the Grotto area. Invite prayer groups in your parish to pray for expecting mothers. Ask the Lord how he is calling you to serve women, children, and families. Pray to St. Joseph, humble servant of God entrusted to care for mother and child.
