 Protector and Patron of The Universal Church

Congratulations and Happy Feast Day
Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny

As Pope Francis wrote in his Apostolic Letter, ‘Patris Corde’, St. Joseph is described as having a ‘Father’s Heart’. 

“Each of us can discover in Joseph – the man who goes unnoticed, 
a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble. Saint Joseph reminds us that those who appear hidden or in the shadows can play an incomparable role in the history of salvation. A word of recognition and of gratitude is due to them all.”

On this feast of St. Joseph, Protector and Patron of the Universal Church and Patron of our Missionary Congregation, we pray that we too may ‘go to Joseph’ in our need and that like him we may live the qualities of this man …

St. Joseph, pray for us

May we be like you…
At God’s Service
Beloved Father
Tender and Loving


May the blessings of Joseph be among us attuning us to God’s will each day
attuning us with humility to those around us
attuning us to God’s transformative dream for us.

May the blessings of Joseph be among us
living as obedient daughters
living love for one another in communities
living God’s Will and hospitality even in difficult circumstances.

May the blessings of Joseph be among us
still opening us to the future
still cooperating in discerning ministries for mission
still keeping us alive with love from daybreak to daybreak

May the blessings of Joseph steep our souls and give us great joy! 

Enjoy this Contemplative Reflection
