Feast on St. Joseph's

Do yourself a favor today: stop by the local Italian pastry shop and pick up some zeppole, the Official Food of St. Joseph's Day.

Don't say you gave sweets up for Lent: Jesus wants you to honor His father and Mother. Is it my fault that God wants me to eat dozens of Italian cookies today?

O St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen
