The Church has set apart March to be dedicated to St. Joseph. Let us ask more frequently for his intercession, that we may be courageous, humble, and prudent like he was.
"We beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be helped by the merits of the Spouse of Thy most holy Mother: so that what we cannot obtain of ourselves,
may be given to us through his intercession." 
St, Joseph pray for us.
