I am looking for a prayer to St Joseph asking his intercession in helping my formation as a Catholic man…I’ve found prayers for husbands and fathers, but I’m not married and don’t have children. Is there any prayer to him that just asks his guidance and intercession in becoming a better man?
those prayers have only been written by other people, you should speak to st joseph in your own words and say all that you want to say, it will be more personal, and you could write it down until you have learnt it
Pray to any male Saint. Saint Joseph is known for patronage of fatherhood, not manhood.
Adam is the one named “man.” I don’t think it is advisable to pray to him, though, because he is not considered a Saint. Praying for him would be good, though.
I think for praying about your manhood, it is best to go to Jesus. That is just my opinion, though. Saint Joseph would be just as good as any other Saint in my opinion, also. Even Saint Joseph looked to Jesus for how to be.
It is obvious you know NOT the Foster Father of the Son of God; you know NOT the Chaste Guardian of the Virgin; you know NOT of the Spouse of the Mother of God - ST. JOSEPH!
Would you care to educate yourself and get to know him and his office and his various titles? We have started a new thread as of today, a thread that will help many of us gain an inside knowledge of “Chosen Blessed St. Joseph”.
By God, he was “chosen” just the way Mary was “chosen” from the very beginning. He is not Jesus’ father, yet has the title and was called “Father” by Jesus Himself!!!
A true man, is a man who has control over his passions! Ever heard of that?
Protector of the Virgin, and being a virgin himself does NOT make him any less of a man nor does it rob him of MANHOOD
