Pray..Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.
St. Joseph's Day MARCH 19 St. Joseph, who is the patron saint of the family, is celebrated at the Spring equinox and his day is a feast of bread. St. Joseph's feast day is still celebrated with gathering together to create enormous buffets for neighbors and friends. The table overflows with an abundance of food that the Father of the Holy Family provides.
