Praying with Saint Louis Guanella to the Blessed Mother and Dear St. Joseph
|Over one hundred years ago Saint Guanella, a fervent devotee of the Blessed Mother, published a booklet entitled Mezz’ora di Buona Preghiera (Half an Hour of Great Prayer.)A Guanellian Way to Pray the Rosary is available with your tax-deductible donation of $5.00 or more to the Pious Union of St. Joseph.
|One of the oldest and dearest devotions leads us to meditate and understand St. Joseph’s virtues and his role in the history of salvation for the Church and each one of us. When our spirit takes refuge under his Holy Cloak we become members of his family with Jesus and Mary. We are protected, guided and sheltered from all evil. This devotion is perfect for anticipating his Feast on March 19th and any time we feel the need for his special assistance and want to be members of the Holy Family.The Holy Cloak in Honor of St. Joseph is available with your tax-deductible donation of $5.00 or more to the Pious Union of St. Joseph.
