So when I have a problem, a difficulty, I write a little note and I put it underneath Saint Joseph so that he can dream about it! In other words, I tell him: pray for this problem!

I do not know how anyone can think of the Queen of the Angels, during the time that she suffered so much with the Child Jesus, without giving thanks to Saint Joseph for the way he helped them. If anyone cannot find a master to teach him how to pray, let him take this glorious saint as his master and he will not go astray. Joseph as your model and you will advance and climb in virtues to levels unheard of.
Before devotion to St. Joseph, I used to follow my own will in regards to my sanctification. My true great mission that is my vocation to Marriage, I did not want to embrace.
