7 Sundays Devotion to St. Joseph

Pope Francis declared the Year of St. Joseph on December 8th, 2020. During this year, the Church is invited to reflect on St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, husband of Mary and patron of the Universal Church, as a model and to invoke his intercession in order to grow closer to his foster son, Jesus.

A great way to start out this Year of St. Joseph is with a 7 Sundays Devotion to honor and reflect on the seven Sorrows and seven Joys of St. Joseph. It begins on January 31st and ends on March 14th, the Sunday prior to the Feast of St. Joseph (March 19th).

Use the attached PDF files to guide your devotions for each of the seven Sundays.

In a way, we are all, like Joseph, a shadow of the heavenly Father … and a shadow that follows his Son. – Pope Francis
