Saint Joseph and Devotion to the Divine Mercy

Saint Faustina wrote in her Diary: “Saint Joseph urged me to have a constant devotion to him.  He himself told me to recite everyday three prayers, and the Remember…” once.   He looked at me with great kindness and gave me to know how much he is supporting this work (of mercy).  He has promised me his special help and protection.  I recite the requested, prayers every day and feel his special protection.” (III,55).

 

The “three prayers” referred to are Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory be to the Father…

The “Remember” is the prayer to St. Joseph that her religious community recited daily:

 

Prayer to St. Joseph

Remember, O most pure spouse of Mary, and my dearly beloved guardian, St. Joseph, that never was it known, that anyone who invoked your care and requested your help was left without consolation.

 Inspired with this confidence, I come to you, and with all the ardor of my spirit I comment myself to you. Do not reject me prayer, O Foster Father of the Savior, but graciously receive and answer it. Amen.
