I'm on Day 5 of the Consecration to St. Joseph by Fr. Donald Calloway with the intention of making the consecration on St. Joseph's feast day of March 19th (if you feel like you've missed your chance, don't worry. You can start on March 30th and make the consecration on Mary 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker).
Today was all about St. Joseph as a model of holiness, someone who embodied the gifts of the Holy Spirit: knowledge, understanding, counsel, fortitude, piety, fear, and wisdom. The following quote resonated with me:
St. Joseph would tell you that if you want to be filled with the Holy Spirit there is one absolutely necessary thing: prayer. Without prayer, you will never be able to have intimacy with God. Without prayer, you will not be able to follow the direction of the Holy Spirit.
. . . Ask the Holy Spirit to make you into "another Joseph." Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with graces similar to those he gave to the paternal heart of St. Joseph.
