He was entrusted to be guardian and care-giver of Jesus and loving spouse to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This chaplet features Hail Joseph, a prayer I found in a 19th Century prayer book “A Novena of Meditation In Honour of St. Joseph, According to the Method of Saint Ignatius” 1874. This little chaplet that can lead you closer to Jesus. Get to know Joseph through his virtues: Pure, Prudent, Humble, Faithful, Devout, Obedient, Poor, Patient, Merciful, Sorrowful/Compassionate.
