[MaryVitamin] St. Joseph and Our Lady


Mary Vitamin for June 23rd
: St. Joseph and Our Lady

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Pere Binet
When Mary and Joseph plead together before the throne of their Divine Son, in favour of one of their servants, is there any grace which they cannot obtain? Great God! Give to me those two all-powerful advocates: grant that they may always plead my cause before Thine adorable Majesty, and that I may ever render to them acceptable service. Where is there to be found an object more beloved by Thee and more worthy of our love than those two noble hearts?
Today I will reflect on the efficacy of the combined prayers of St. Joseph and Our Lady. In a particular way, I will entrust the spiritual care of my Godchildren to them today.
Marian Vow:
The Missionaries of the Immaculate Mediatrix are invited to cultivate a supernatural affection for St. Joseph, the Guardian of the Holy Family, Patron of the Church and of the entire family of Franciscans of the Immaculate. To entrust oneself to St. Joseph means to recognize his singular role, alongside the Immaculate, in the work of our sanctification.
Marian Seraphic Pathways, Directory, #69
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Thanks be to God for graces received.
