(Feast of St Joseph)
ST JOSEPH, on account of having saved the Infant Jesus from the snares of Herod, has the privilege of delivering the dying from the snares of the devil. Moreover, on account of the services which he rendered for so many years to Jesus and Mary, he has the privilege of obtaining their special assistance for his devout clients at death.
