"To other Saints Our Lord seems to have given power to succour us in some special necessity — but to this glorious Saint, I know by experience, He has given the power to help us in all. Our Lord would have us understand that as He was subject to St. Joseph on earth — for St. Joseph, bearing the title of father and being His guardian, could command Him — so now in Heaven Our Lord grants all his petitions. I have asked others to recommend themselves to St. Joseph, and they, too, know the same thing by experience"
- St Teresa of Avila
Imagine being able to command God! What awesome responsibility and honour was that of our Saint. If while on earth St Joseph could ask his Foster-Son anything and receive it, why should anything have changed now that they are together in heavenly glory? Go to St Joseph in all your needs and be confident of being heard!
Our Shrine to St Joseph on Papa Stronsay, erected for the nine days of his Novena. We owe so much to St Joseph, not least the fact that we live on the Holy Island of Papa Stronsay.
Please continue, dear Saint, to watch over us with your protection and intercession that with your help, and that of your spouse, Mary, we may all be found worthy to enter into eternal glory. Amen.
