Devotions to St. Joseph Marello

 






Prayer to St. Joseph Marello

O Saint Joseph Marello, like your patron and model, Saint Joseph, you are a proof that sanctity consists not in extraordinary achievements that world‘s attention, but in the daily exercise of the virtues of simplicity, charity and humility. With complete trust in divine Providence, you founded the Oblates of Saint Joseph, to serve the interests of Jesus in imitation of his guardian and protector. Father of youth, protector of the poor and the aged, gentle shepherd of your flock, model of charity, you blended strength with kindness, prayers with action, and faithfulness to the church with zealous attention to the sign of the times. May your holy life inspire the youth to take Gospel as their sure guide; your Oblates to be hidden and faithful instruments of God‘s work; priests and bishop to be loyal and loving shepherds. Pray with us that we may all live with that peacefulness of mind and heart that comes only from a trusting surrender to God‘s will. Amen.
