Dear St. Joseph,
The bible never quotes your words. 
We know you through the gospels 
as the protector of our Lord Jesus 
and his blessed mother, Mary. 
 
We know you by your actions and your dreams. 
 
Help us to take action, to do all we can in this time of crisis 
to lovingly keep those around us safe. 
But also inspire us with dreams, 
dreams of a better world, 
a world of truth and justice, love and peace. 
 
Amen.
 
By Columban Fr. John Burger, U.S. Regional Director
