With so much talk in the news these days about sickness and death, it is perhaps timeous to invoke St Joseph under his title Patron of a Happy Death – meaning, of course, that we are granted the grace of receiving the Last Sacraments before we depart this world. St Joseph is a very powerful saint and, traditionally believed to have died in the presence of Our Lord and Our Lady, Catholics have always invoked him to obtain for us the same wonderful grace. St Joseph, patron of a happy death, pray for us!
