St. Joseph Novena

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your 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. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.

The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith

The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith
by Josephine Nobisso, Gingerbread House

This is a story about a kingdom whose inhabitants had grown cold in their faith. One day an old woman entered the bakery and asked for a crust of bread. In exchange she would offer a Mass for the baker. He mocked her, wrote the words, "One Mass" on a delicate piece of tissue paper and dropped it on his scale. On the other side he placed a piece of bread. The whole town was amazed at what happened next!
