Pope Francis proclaims “Year of St Joseph”

December 8th, 2020-December 8th, 2021

In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father… The release of the letter coincides with the 150th anniversary of the declaration naming Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.

Let us pray together:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

El Papa Francisco convoca a un “Año de San José”

8 de diciembre de 2020 al 8 de diciembre de 2021

En una nueva carta apostólica titulada Patris corde (“Con corazón de padre”), el Papa Francisco describe a San José como un padre amado, un padre tierno y amoroso, un padre obediente, un padre que acepta … El lanzamiento de la carta coincide con el aniversario de la declaración de San José como  Patrón de la Iglesia Universal.

Oremos juntos:

Salve, Guardián del Redentor, Esposa de la Santísima Virgen María. A ti Dios te confió a su único Hijo; en ti María puso su confianza; contigo Cristo se hizo hombre.

Bendito José, también para nosotros, muéstrate padre y guíanos por el camino de la vida. Obtén para nosotros gracia, misericordia y valor, y defiéndenos de todo mal. Amén.
