Day 26

Guardian of Virgins, Pray for Us


I prayed to St Joseph to watch over me. From my childhood, my devotion to him was mingled with my love for the Blessed Virgin. Each day I recited the prayer,


"O Saint Joseph, father and protector of virgins.” It seemed to me that I was well protected and completely sheltered from every danger.“

- St Thérèse of Lisieux


Saint Joseph has a special love for those consecrated to God through religious vows. Saint Joseph loves everyone, of course, but he has a special place in his heart for virgins. A virgin himself, St Joseph knows firsthand the intimacy that a virgin is capable of having with God. Saint Joseph lived for 30 years with the two greatest virgins to ever grace this planet: Jesus and Mary.

Virginity is a treasure. It is a treasure that St Joseph guards and wants others to know about.


Saint Faustina's religious community, the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, recite the Memorare to St Joseph every day. Saint Faustina herself had a tremendous devotion to St Joseph and daily asked his intercession for her vocation and mission. She wrote:

Saint Joseph urged me to have a constant devotion to him. He himself told me to recite three prayers [the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be] and the Memorare [to St Joseph] once every day. I recite the requested prayers every day and feel his special protection.


If you maintain a daily loving relationship with St Joseph, your eyes, intentions, heart and relationships can be pleasing to God and free of anything that goes against purity. If you walk with St Joseph, you will find less and less pleasure in filthy and perverse films. Such "entertainment" will repulse your soul. Music that is foul, degrading to women, and offensive to God will not appeal to you either. This doesn't mean you must only listen to Christian music or watch Christian movies, but it does mean that you will know light from the darkness.

Everyone is going to be tempted to sin against purity - some more than others. In St Joseph, everyone has a guardian and a protector. Turn to him in times of temptation and you will grow

in innocence and purity. Frequently ask his intercession to keep your heart pure and chaste.


Prayer

The Memorare to St Joseph:

Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, my spiritual father, and beg your protection. O foster father of the Redeemer, despise not my petitions, but in your goodness hear and answer me. Amen.
