Ode to Saint Joseph

The Holy Family
by Raphael

Prayer to Saint Joseph

  Dear Familial Father of the Christ,
So many are hurting:
without jobs
without work
without green cards
without hope;

We need 
your staff of protection,
the comfort of a shoulder,
the belief
we will be heard!

Please protect the lost
the homeless
the poor &

I believe
if we humble 
quantum physics
and prayer will meld--
Unite us then with your Son,
O Earthly Father of the Christ Child,
Save us All!

The Saints are there for us; 
St. Joseph is a great protector,
and one of my "Heavy Hitter Saints."
This prayer is for all who need it
from every land.
