A Very Powerful Exercise in Honor of the Seven Sorrows and the Seven Joys of St. Joseph


  1. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering when you feared to keep the Blessed Virgin as your lawful wife, because She had secretly conceived; and on account of your great joy when the Angel told you that Her Child had been given Her straight from heaven by the Holy Spirit, please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  2. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering, when you could not find a decent place to stay in Bethlehem; and on account of your great joy when you noticed that the Infant Baby Jesus was satisfied to be born in a stable, please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  3. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering, when the blood of the Baby Jesus was flowing for the first time; and on account of your great joy, when, at that occasion, they gave Him the beautiful name "Jesus", which means "God saves us", please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  4. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering, when the Prophet Simeon foretold that the soul of Mary would be pierced by a sword of sorrow and that the Child Jesus would become a sign of contradiction; and on account of your great joy when He was acknowledged in the temple as the Savior of the whole world and the Glory of the Chosen People, please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  5. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering when the wicked King Herod wanted to kill the Infant Jesus; and on account of your great joy when you escaped with Jesus and Mary towards the country of Egypt, please listen to our prayers. Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  6. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering when you feared to go back to Bethlehem because Archelaus reigned in the place of his father Herod; and on account of your great joy when the Angel told you to establish your home in Nazareth, please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...

  7. O Saint Joseph, on account of your great suffering when you had lost the Boy Jesus; and on account of your great joy when you found Him on the third day in the Temple, please listen to our prayers. (Then say) Our Father ... Hail Mary ... Glory Be ...
