Litany of St Joseph

Leave a comment

Someone recommended the

Holy Cloak Novena
30 days of prayer to St Joseph in honour of his 30 years as foster father of the Son of God.

In typical idiotic procrastination I typed up the Litany of St Joseph from the Liber Usualis with an English translation. To even up the page count I added Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to St Joseph – to be said after the rosary during the month of October.

Technically it was a more challenging piece. Typing up a litany has the problem of how to arrange all the invocations with translations so that it is easy to read and follow.


Now to pray the litany for 30 days! If this helps you, please spare a prayer for my intentions.
