SEVEN SORROWS AND SEVEN JOYS of
ST. JOSEPH.
The First Sorrow and First Joy.
St. Joseph, pure Spouse of most holy
Mary, the trouble and anguish of thy heart
were great, when, being in sore perplexity,
thou wast minded to put away thy stainless
Spouse, and thy joy was inexpressible when
the Archangel revealed to thee the high
mystery of the Incarnation .
By this, thy sorrow and thy joy, we pray
thee, comfort our souls now and in their last
pains with the consolation of a well-spent
life, and a holy death like unto thine own,
with Jesus and Mary at our side.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Second Sorrow and Second Joy.
St. Joseph, blessed Patriarch, chosen to
the office of Father of the Word-made Man,
the pain was keen that thou didst feel when
thou didst see the Infant Jesus born in abject
poverty, but thy pain was changed into
heavenly joy when thou didst hear the harmony
of Angel-choirs and behold the glory
of that night when Jesus was born.
By this, thy sorrow and thy joy, we pray
thee obtain for us, that when the journey of
our life is ended, we, too, may pass to that
blessed land, where we shall hear the Angel-
chants, and rejoice in the bright light of
heavenly glory.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Third Sorrow and Third Joy.
St. Joseph, who wast ever most obedient in
executing the law of God, thy heart was pierced
with pain when the Precious Blood of the Infant Saviour
was shed at His Circumcision; but with the Name of Jesus
new life and heavenly joy returned to thee.
By this, thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain
for us that, we, too, may cheerfully die with
the sweet Name of Jesus in our hearts and
on our lips.

Fourth Sorrow and Fourth Joy.
St. Joseph, faithful Saint,
who was admitted to take part in the Redemption of man;
the prophecy of Simeon foretelling the sufferings of Jesus and Mary,
caused thee pang like that of death; but, at the same time,
his prediction of the salvation and glorious Resurrection
of innumerable souls filled thee with a blessed joy.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, help us
with thy prayers to be of the number of
those who, by the merits of Jesus and His
Virgin Mother, shall be partakers of the
resurrection to glory.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Fifth Sorrow and Fifth Joy.
St. Joseph, watchful Guardian, friend of
the Incarnate Son of God, truly thou didst
greatly toil to nurture and to serve the Son
of the Most High, especially in the flight
thou madest with Him into Egypt; yet didst
thou rejoice to have God Himself always
with thee, and to see the overthrow of the
idols of Egypt.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain for
us grace to keep far out of the reach of the
enemy of our souls, by quitting all dangerous
occasions, that so no idol of earthly
affection may any longer occupy a place in
our hearts, but that, being entirely devoted
to the service of Jesus and Mary, we may
live and die for them alone.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Sixth Sorrow and Sixth Joy.
St. Joseph, Angel on earth, who didst so
wonder to see the King of Heaven obedient
to thy bidding, the consolation thou hadst at
his return was disturbed by the fear of
Arohelaus, but, nevertheless, being reassured
by the Angel, thou didst go back and dwell
happily at Nazareth, in the company of
Jesus and of Mary.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain
for us that, having our hearts freed from
idle fears , we may enjoy the peace of a tranquil
conscience, dwelling safely with Jesus
and Mary, and dying at last between them.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Seventh Sorrow and Seventh Joy.
St. Joseph, example of all holy living,
when, though without blame, thou didst lose
Jesus, the Holy Child, thou didst search for
Him for three long days in great sorrow,
until with joy unspeakable thou didst find
Him, who was as thy life to thee, amidst the
doctors in the Temple.
By this thy sorrow and thy Joy, we pray
thee with our whole heart so to interpose
always in our behalf, that we may never lose
Jesus by mortal sin; and if (which God
avert) we are at any time so wretched as to
do so, then we pray thee to aid us to seek Him,
particularly in the hour of our death, that
we may pass from this life to enjoy Him for
ever in heaven, there to sing with thee His
divine mercies without end.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the
Father.

Pius VII. granted to all the faithful who,
with contrite heart, practise the foregoing
devotion, an indulgence of 100 days, once on
any day of the year ; and of 300 days, on
any Wednesday of the year, and on every
day of the Novena preceding his two chief
feasts—March 19th, and third Sunday after
Easter (Feast of his Patronage). Also a
Plenary Indulgence (after Confession and
Communion) on these feasts, or once a month
for those who say these prayers daily for a
month. (Raccotta.}
