Prayer To St. Joseph in English ©2018
O SAINT JOSEPH, just as thou as father and mentor didst most faithfully guide Jesus Christ during His boyhood and adolescence through His journeys in this life, I beseech thee to assist me in the wanderings of my life as just such a companion and guide. Never permit me to turn aside from the path of God's commandments. Be for me a protection in adversity, and a solace in hardship, until I finally arrive in the land of the living, where I may rejoice forever with thee, with the most holy spouse Mary, and with all the saints in my God Jesus
Symbolism in this Painting:
A brief explanation of the symbolism in this painting:
In the bottom corners are Lilly’s, the flower that is said to have blossom from the top of St. Joseph walking staff. Lilly’s are symbol of purity. Daisies, found at the top of the composition are a symbol of the innocence of the Christ Child and they are associated with purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity. Violas symbolize the Trinity because of their three-color petals. Violet is a symbol of humility and is associated with Christ on earth as an infant. Strawberries with their white flowers and red fruit, purity and martyrdom. Their threefold leaves reference the Trinity. Pea flowers are associated with the birth of Christ and are symbolically linked to good-bye, departure, and thank you.
The Lion represents strength, majesty, courage, and fortitude. The hare is a symbol of men who put the believe of their salvation in the Christ and His Passion. The butterfly is a symbol for the cycles of life; caterpillar, chrysalis and finally, the butterfly. Birds are the symbol of the “Winged Soul”. They are used to suggest the Spiritual, as opposed to the material. The Bee and Ants that are scattered throughout the composition are used because of their industrious habits, as symbols of activity, diligence, work and good order. The spots of the seven-spot ladybug symbolize Mary’s Seven Joys and Seven Sorrows.
