St Joseph the Wonder Worker of the Church

With St Joseph the Wonder Worker, his influence with Jesus in Heaven is not limited to a few things, he is the patron saint of many things, in fact St Joseph has many roles in the Church.
 
St Joseph’s many ‘roles’ in Heaven include being the patron saint of: carpenters, workers, builders, fathers, foster fathers, marriages, families, social justice, of buying and selling houses, finding good marriage partners and, his top role is as patron of the universal Church on earth including churches, convents and monasteries.  St Joseph must be quite busy up above!
From Mary’s hands come all the graces we need as God uses Mary as the channel and mediatrix to bring his grace to earth just as God used Mary to bring to earth, Jesus, His Word made flesh. 
Many commentators on the life of perfection have remarked that it is a  good sign to have a solid devotion to the great St Joseph. Devotion to both Joseph and Mary are both amazing powerhouses for good and grace in our lives. 
I strongly advise praying the St Joseph miracle prayer (as a novena for nine days if you have a special intention) and try for yourself his powerful intercession and help. I am sure St Joseph loves to hear God’s children pray to him for help as we are all God’s ‘adopted sons’ in Christ, his foster son. St Joseph’s great obedience to God’s will whilst on earth has made him such a great Saint in Heaven.
The Miracle Prayer
his prayer was found in the 50th year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505, it was sent from the pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death or be drowned, nor shall poison take effect on them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy or be burned in any fire or be overpowered in battle. Say for nine mornings for anything you desire. It has never been known to fail.

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires.

O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

O St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him close in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen.
