"We saw beside the sun St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus appeared to bless the world, for they traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands." (Vision seen by the 3 seers during the Miracle of the Sun, Oct. 13, 1917.)

The World Apostolate of Fatima USA declared 2021 a Year of St. Joseph, under the title: The greatest consoler of the Immaculate Heart. We seek his powerful intercession for strengthening families, the Church and for the work of the apostolate in spreading the Fatima message.

 

Prayer to St. Joseph: Father - Protector - Consoler

O St. Joseph, at Fatima, you appeared as head of the Holy Family and with the Child Jesus, blessed the world and all its inhabitants. As the greatest consoler of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we beseech you to assist us in our devotion to your beloved spouse, especially in our First Saturday reparations, which console our heavenly Mother. As the faithful father and protector of Mary and Jesus, we implore your powerful intercession in helping us to restore marriage and family to right order with God. With your spiritual carpenter skills, rebuild our Church and guide those who have strayed, back to our Eucharistic Lord. Assist us in spreading the message of Our Lady of Fatima, and help us to do our part in bringing about the triumph she promised. Amen..
