Nine Days to Joseph: Day Nine

For the Marian Press title Meet Your Spiritual Father: A Brief Introduction to St. Joseph by Dr. Mark Miravalle, Hearts Afire: Parish-based Programs creator Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, composed a special nine-day preparation for entrustment to St. Joseph. Here's Day Nine:

Day Nine - St. Joseph, Who Died So Beautifully
Dear St. Joseph,

I know I am going to die. When I do, I trust that you will be there to greet me with Jesus and Mary in a special way. Will you please promise me this? I trust you. I believe that you will be there for me. For my part, I will try not to be afraid of my death, and I will live my life in preparation for it. I will maybe even look forward to it as the time when I will get to meet you face to face. Prepare me for my death, whenever it may be. If it is sudden, please make sure that my soul is prepared and please make sure I will not be lost! Dear St. Joseph, obtain this grace for me as I consecrate myself to your fatherly care. Tomorrow, I am fully yours. Probably someday after that, I will die, and I give you permission to take me home to my Father's house when that day comes.

Saint Joseph, who died so beautifully, please prepare my soul for death.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, whose feast day is on Aug. 14, had a zeal for Our Lady, and built an entire city in Poland dedicated to her.
By doing as Our Lady asks, we can help take these thorns out of her Immaculate Heart and assist her in bringing into the world what it most desperately needs: Jesus, the Divine Mercy.
There's hope in the Heart of the Mother of God, in the Eternal Light dwelling there, in the Spirit who burns within her, and she is not consumed.
