Podcast: St Joseph Novena

Over the years my devotion to St Joseph has grown. As a fellow foster Dad, albeit to sons of God (just not the Son of God), I have the tiniest glimpse into what it might have been like to struggle, to wonder, and to hope you are doing the job justice. A hard job indeed. St Joseph wore it well. I aspire to do the same.

As a busy dad of four teenage boys I often find myself in the car. Whether it is the daily commute to work, dropping off or picking up boys from school, or long car rides to sporting events, I am often in need of a change of pace from music or podcasts. When that is the case I have turned to certain podcasts that help me to pray. I have a go to podcast for praying each set of mysteries of the rosary, but I didn’t have one for my favorite novena to St Joseph, so I thought I’d make one.

Even though the prayers are basically the same each day, I wanted to make nine full episodes and not simply one so that:

  • One could more easily keep track of progress from day one through day nine.

  • Accentuate the nine unique character traits of St Joseph that this devotion highlights.

  • Utilize different background music for each day to break the monotony.

I have each of the episodes listed below, but you can subscribe to this podcast at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast and more.
