Litany of St Joseph

This is has been designated as the year for St Joseph by Pope Francis. Not too many people know about St Joseph. I thought on different Saturdays I would include a prayer or a novena or some information about St Joseph. Today I offer you a litany. Take time to add to your prayers. Or have family members join you with the responses.
