Year of St. Joseph

Click here to read about Five Spiritual Benefits From the Year of St. Joseph.

The following are brief explanations of the titles of St. Joseph recited in the Litany to St. Joseph.

Patron of the Dying –  It is believed that St. Joseph died a holy and happy death, gazing upon Jesus and resting in the arms of Mary. St. Joseph’s death is a touching and desirable example for us. God has designated St. Joseph as the Patron of the Dying because he wants us to experience a death similar to that of St. Joseph — holy and happy. 

Terror of Evil Spirits – St. Joseph was entrusted by God with the mission of caring for and protecting the Holy Family and was endowed with special graces to strike fear in the forces of darkness. From Heaven, this humble, quiet man of strength will lead us to the peace found in Jesus.
