Pope Francis has always been a man of faith and prayer. In this video, he prays to St Joseph asking for his help in governing the Church.
Pope Francis Prays to Saint Joseph
Pope Francis on Wednesday prayed to St. Joseph, the patron saint of parents and families, in an annual ceremony in the Vatican.
The pontiff said that “St. Joseph can intercede for us before God, who is always merciful.”
Pope Francis also encouraged parents to give their children a “good example” and to teach them how to live faithful lives.
The prayer was part of the pontiff’s weekly general audience on Wednesday morning.
The Purpose of Prayer
Pope Francis on Thursday prayed to St Joseph, patron of the Catholic Church and father of Jesus Christ, asking for his intercession in order to combat global poverty.
“Dear St Joseph, I come before you today with a heart full of great concern. I see the vastness and gravity of the problems caused by poverty and social exclusion,” Pope Francis said in his prayer. “I ask you, as my father in heaven, to help us fight against this evil with all your strength. I humbly pray that through your powerful intercession we may be able to do so quickly and effectively.”
The pope’s words come at a time when poverty and inequality are becoming more prominent issues around the world. Inequality has become a key issue for the Catholic Church, which has been vocal about its opposition to economic inequality since Pope Francis took office in 2013.
Pope Francis’ prayer is a sign that he is serious about trying to address the issue head-on. He has made it clear that he wants to focus on solving the root causes of poverty rather than just providing assistance to those who are in need.

Background of the Prayers to St Joseph
Pope Francis prayed the Our Father and the Hail Mary to St Joseph on Sunday, Feb. 13th at the end of his general audience in Saint Peter’s Square. The pope has long had a special devotion to St Joseph and has made many references to him throughout his papacy.
The Our Father, which begins with “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name….” is a prayer that is used by Catholics throughout the world. The Hail Mary, which begins with “Hail Mary full of grace….” is also a common prayer that Catholics use.
Pope Francis said that he prayed the Our Father and the Hail Mary to St Joseph because he feels close to him. He said that St Joseph “is our model of fidelity, of love for God and for neighbor” and that he “is worthy of being loved with all our strength and all our heart.”
Pope Francis has often talked about how important it is for people to have a personal relationship with God. He said that we can learn from St Joseph how to have a deep faith in God and how to be true witnesses to our neighbors.
The Prayer to St Joseph
Pope Francis prayed to St Joseph today, in an effort to draw closer to the saint. The prayer is a reparation for the clerical sexual abuse scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church in recent years.
“O Saint Joseph, Patron of the Church and her people, I earnestly implore you to help me overcome the difficulties that surround me. I offer you my sincerest apologies for any hurt or harm that I may have caused you in the past and ask for your forgiveness. Protect me from all evil and bring me peace.”
Pope Francis has made many gestures aimed at repairing the church’s image in recent months. This prayer is just one example of how he is trying to change things.
Pope Francis has continued to make headlines with his progressive and controversial stances on a variety of issues, but one of the more recent topics he’s tackled is prayer. In a video released earlier this month, Pope Francis prayed to St Joseph, asking him to intercede on behalf of humanity. This prayer comes as something of a surprise to many Catholics, given that St Joseph is usually seen as patron saint of couples and families. While some may see this as an indication that Pope Francis views marriage differently than most Catholics do, others may find solace in the words he says: “Help us take into account all those who have been maltreated because they are weak or because they are homosexuals; help us also think about unborn children.”
