Saint Joseph

Happy accident obtained by the intercession of Saint Joseph.

Here is a new feature of Saint Joseph’s protection that we have from a very reliable source.

In a suburb of Nantes, a pious person was busy in a private pharmacy making remedies for the poor sick who lacked the resources to obtain them elsewhere. One day, a young boy came to her, asking her to give him a remedy for his dangerously ill mother. After having quickly read the doctor’s prescription, this charitable person, full of devotion for the unfortunate, hastened to compose the medicine that was requested of her, and to give it to the boy, so that he could bring it without delay to the sick woman. But, alas! some time after the young commissionaire had left, she realized that she had made a mistake in the remedy and that the potion she had prepared might give death to the unfortunate woman who took it. Immediately a nervous trembling agitated her whole body, a cold sweat covered her forehead. But what to do? Run after the child? But she does not know on which side he went. Not knowing how to prevent this misfortune, she throws herself at the feet of a statue of Saint Joseph, placed in a small niche in the middle of the pharmacy and, animated by the most lively confidence:

“Great Saint,” she said to him, with a voice full of tears, “come to my aid, make, I beseech you, that the vial break and that not a single drop remains.” A few minutes after having addressed her fervent supplication to the chaste Spouse of Mary, the Comforter of the afflicted, she hears a knock at the door. She opened the door with a shudder; it seemed to her that the dreaded fatal news had been announced. But, oh happiness! she sees the young boy all confused, who says to her while crying: “I had the misfortune to break my vial which contained the remedy that you had given me, not a drop remained.”

It is easier to understand than to express what joy filled the heart of this charitable person when she saw with what love and promptitude Saint Joseph had answered her prayer.

If this example testifies to the power of Saint Joseph, it also teaches us not to let ourselves be stopped by temporal setbacks and accidents. One day, in Eternity, we will discover to what extent the minutiae of our lives were orchestrated by God, Creator and Master of all things.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
