Protector of Holy Church, glory of home life, terror of demons, patron of the dying, pillar of families, mirror of patience. Saint Joseph is all of that and more. As spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and foster father of Christ, this holy man is a powerhouse saint and model of virtue. 150 years ago, he was even named Patron of the Universal Church by Pope Pius IX.
Beginning April 23, the feast of Saint George, Relevant Radio® will pray a Novena to St. Joseph. The novena will continue for nine days leading up to the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker on May 1, on which day Relevant Radio will consecrate the network and its listeners to St. Joseph.
“We’re going to consecrate Relevant Radio and our worldwide family of listeners to St. Joseph for a number of reasons,” said Fr. Rocky in an interview on Morning Air®. “First to thank St. Joseph for all he’s done over the years at Relevant Radio—he’s really been a game changer. And then second to ask his powerful intercession over all of us and upon our mission so that we stay faithful to Christ.”
For nine days from April 23 to May 1, Fr. Rocky will provide a daily reflection on St. Joseph. If you’d like to join along, sign up to receive the audio reflection and prayer in your inbox each morning.
The novena will culminate on May 1, the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, when Relevant Radio consecrates the Relevant Radio family and network to St. Joseph at 3:30pm CT. Stay tuned for more information about this special broadcast.
“This will complete the cycle of consecrating Relevant Radio to each of the three members of the Holy Family,” explained Fr. Rocky. “Back in 2003—that was the year I started on air at Relevant Radio—we consecrated Relevant Radio to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. And now 17 years later, we’re consecrating Relevant Radio and our worldwide family of listeners to St. Joseph.”
