What a time to be alive.
You only need to look around to see that the world is in bad shape. Society is coming apart at the seams. The Church is under constant attack. The forces of evil seem to be on the loose wherever you turn.
It seems like we could really use a hero. Someone to defend the Church from her enemies. To protect our families from the spiritual onslaught. To take on the demons.
Thankfully, the Church has always had such a hero.
They call him the Terror of Demons. The Defender of Families. The Patron of the Universal Church.
Now, more than ever, we need St. Joseph.
The Church has always been deeply devoted to this saint—and great spiritual minds such as St. Teresa of Ávila have extolled his singular role in the Church and his particular power of intercession. The recently-concluded Year of St. Joseph placed this great saint before us anew.
With all the spiritual danger swirling around us, there has been no more urgent time to entrust ourselves and our families totally to this great hero of the Church. You can do that in a profound way through a total consecration to St. Joseph.
Consecrating yourself to St. Joseph means making a formal act of filial entrustment, intentionally taking him as your spiritual father. It means placing yourself and every aspect of your life under his fatherly care, abiding by his guidance, and striving to imitate his life and virtues.
Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, shows us exactly how to do this in Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father.
Following the method of St. Louis de Montfort’s total consecration to Our Lady, Fr. Calloway takes the reader through 33 days of preparation for consecration to St. Joseph. Fr. Calloway offers reflections and insights on the role of St. Joseph in the Church and his particular guardianship of our souls. He reveals to us the wonders of our spiritual father and, through this consecration plan, shows us how we can truly be the spiritual children of St. Joseph.
