The Rosary of St. Joseph

THE ROSARY OF SAINT JOSEPH

This Rosary, composed of nine mysteries in all, is divided into three parts, each part consisting of three decades, in honor of the thirty years that St. Joseph passed in the company of Jesus and Mary.  Like the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, each decade is comprised of one Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and a Glory Be.  Each part concludes with an Act of Contrition, asking St. Joseph to obtain pardon and mercy for you.  As with the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, it may thus be conveniently divided into thirds, not necessarily recited consecutively.

First Part

The Incarnation.

The Perplexity of St. Joseph (as to whether he should abandon his Virgin Spouse).

The Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.

(Concludes with an Act of Contrition, asking St. Joseph to obtain pardon and mercy for you.)

Second Part

The Presentation of the Infant Jesus in the Temple.

The Flight of the Holy Family into Egypt.

The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple.

(Concludes with an Act of Contrition, asking St. Joseph to obtain pardon and mercy for you.)

Third Part

The Hidden Life of Jesus at Nazareth.

The death of St. Joseph.

The Coronation of St. Joseph in Heaven.

(Concludes with an Act of Contrition, asking St. Joseph to obtain pardon and mercy for you.)
