    BUT .. all has been well ! The right people did the right things at the right time at each step of the emergency; mother and baby are both now out of hospital and are doing extremely well.

  74. I have prayed the St Joseph Novena and one of my needs was over an application for a job and soon after I got an email with positive outcome to my application. St Joseph is my patron Saint and I am forever grateful for his continuous intercession for my needs and the needs of countless others. God bless.

  75. I asked St Joseph to help my son hear my prayers to respond to me, to have a chance to talk with me, and my son did. It was a conversation which allowed me to say all the things I needed to get off my chest, as well as allow for a much needed reconnection with him. It was like old times and it was wonderful. I pray St J will always protect him as a father would.

  76. I am so grateful for all the answered prayers through all the saints novenas I have prayed through pray more novena! God bless you

  77. I have been praying for the completed healing of my son for over three years. He has a huge problem with addiction and the consequent employment, financial and social consequences. I have taken part in nearly every novena and whilst I have seen some improvements they do not last.
    For some reason lately I have stopped praying. When I read these comments, knowing that I did not pray the St Joseph novena I realise that I have missed an opportunity.

    I read this in a message in one of Annie and John Paul’s other posts and realise I have to keep believing and that it will happen in Gods time.

    “The Lord is near. He has you. Don’t give up. Hang in there.”

    I found these words inspiring and hope to be more committed and not doubt.
    Please St Joseph intercede for my son for his healing and opening up opportunities?

  78. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Feb. 9. My lumpectomy surgery was scheduled for Thursday, March 18….so, I was “sandwiched” between the feasts of St. Patrick and St. Joseph. My surgeon’s name is Patrick; and my name is Jo. My husband had been praying and telling me that he felt like when my surgeon did surgery, he would find the tumor gone! My husband said that after surgery, the doctor came out and talked with him. He told my husband, “When I got in there, I honestly couldn’t see anything; but, I took enough tissue that if a tumor/mass was there, I got it all.” At my post-op appointment, my doctor said that pathology showed clear margins and no lymph involvement. I will have to have radiation for a few weeks, just to make sure. But, God is so good to me! Thanking St. Joseph for his intercession.

  79. I have always participated in any novena sent to my mail. In my country access to good health facility is almost impossible as corruption has eaten deep into every sector. I want to thank God for a successful surgery and divine healing and also praying for the fruit of the womb.
    Pls join me in Thanksgiving and prayers as we begin the next novena for divine mercy.

  80. St. Joseph, in this novena, in conjunction with Mother Mary to whom I was also reciting a daily rosary with the same prayer intentions, both answered my prayers on day 4 of the novena. My son had a immediate positive turn around with his situation at work, and he also received immediate relief from a medical condition that had plagued him for the better part of a year. Thank you Mother Mary and St. Joseph! R.

  81. I pray nearly every Novena. My prayers have been answered in that my breast cancer is completely gone! God is so Good! – LAM

  82. Thanks be to God. I also prayed St Joseph novena. I retired but things are not good for me now, in such a way that I need a job. I got a one month job, its better than nothing. I still hope that I will get another job

  83. I pray all the novenas sent to me. I find them v healing if I feel stressful in life. My novena prayers have been listened to . Thank god all my family are still staying safe and well during these difficult times.

  85. All the novenas have played a big part in my daughter’s healing…the last one was St. Joseph Novena and right after March 19, my daughter proclaimed that she is cancer free. I believe that continuing with the Divine Mercy will bring my children back to their Catholic Faith. God is good all the time!

  86. Thanks St Joseph for giving me the miracle of a home.
    Intercede for people who are looking to have their own home so that they can be happy as I am!
    Be with me in my new home. Bless me with love.

  87. I prayed this novena for my guardian Fr. Fritz Stenger who had a surgery on Wednesday 17th March. Sadly, the surgery was unsuccessful. However, I guess it turned out to be a prayer for him to have a happy death and have only found solace in it after the deep reflection I went through as I grieved. He was so at peace with himself by Tuesday. May God rest his kind soul in eternal peace. I miss him every day.
