God, because of the great love He bears for us and His great desire to see us saved, has given us among other means of salvation the practice of devotion to the saints. It is His Will, that they, who are His friends, should intercede for us, and by their merits and prayers obtain graces for us which we ourselves do not deserve.
But everyone must know that, after the Mother of God, St. Joseph is, of all the saints, the one dearest to God. He has, therefore, great power with Him and can obtain graces for his devout clients.
Let us then frequently say: St. Joseph, give me the greatest confidence in thy powerful intercession.
