This image of St. Joseph holding the Child Jesus by the hand is a beautiful gift for any father. Saint Joseph holds the lily in his hand as a sign of his perpetual purity, which blossomed when he was selected to be the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We remember the powerful intercession of this favorite Catholic saint as the ideal role model for fathers, for workers, especially carpenters, and as the patron saint of the dying. Veneration of Saint Joseph is sure to bring blessings to any home and family! A Father’s Day and Christmas favorite!
This lovely statue is hand-painted and stands 8.25" high.
Resin stone mix. Gift boxed.
ST JOSEPH PRAYER
O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O Saint Joseph, please obtain from thy foster son Our lord Jesus Christ all spiritual blessings, so that having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer thee my thanksgiving and homage. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee and Jesus asleep in thy arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in my name, and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us!
