Day 28

Comfort of the Afflicted,

Pray for Us


“Nothing will be refused him [St Joseph], neither by Our Lady nor by his glorious Son.”- St Francis de Sales


Comforting the afflicted is a work of mercy. The Church has seven Spiritual Works of Mercy and seven Corporal Works of Mercy. The works of mercy help us to be devout followers of Jesus Christ by serving others; they help us to be like St Joseph.


SEVEN CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY


Feed the Hungry

Give Drink to the Thirsty

Clothe the Naked

Shelter the Homeless

Visit the Prisoners

Comfort the Sick

Bury the Dead


SEVEN SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY


Teach the Ignorant

Pray for the Living and the Dead

Correct Sinners

Counsel Those in Doubt

Console the Sorrowful

Bear Wrongs Patiently

Forgive Wrongs Willingly


Experiencing misery or feeling miserable is not pleasant. Yet the reality is that we are all going to have miserable moments in life. This world is a valley of tears, and everyone is going to suffer. There is no way around it. Whether it's financial problems, marital hardships, psychological struggles, difficulties in relationships, the death of loved ones, or a thousand other woes, we will all experience misery in life. It is good to have someone we can turn to for comfort and solace in such times.


No matter what life brings, however, St Joseph will always be your consolation, comfort and solace. He knows well the hardships of life. He is a kind and loving father. He comforts everyone who comes to him in times of affliction. His fatherhood is unlike any other.

A loving father provides comfort to his children, especially when they are going through difficulties. A father's wisdom and presence are reassuring and life-giving. Knowing you can always go to your father in difficult times reassures you that everything will be okay, even when your world seems to be falling apart.


God wants you to rest in St Josephs's fatherhood. When life has you down, run to your spiritual father. Pour out your heart to him. Tell him your troubles. He is the most loving of fathers. He is always available for you, always attentive, and always understanding.


Prayer

Confidently confiding in your paternal care, we surrender ourselves completely to you so that when discouragement overwhelms us, let us think of your faith; if anxiety grips us, let us think of your hope; if exasperation or hatred seize us, let us think of your love, you who was the first man to set eyes on the human face of God in the person of the Infant conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary. Let us praise and thank Christ for having drawn so close to us, and for giving us St Joseph as an example and model of love. Amen.
