NOVENA TO ST. JOSEPH FOR THE DEFEAT OF OKLAHOMA'S RIGHT TO WORK FOR LESS REFERENDUM.

OKC Catholic Worker HOME

We invite all persons of good will to join us in a novena of prayers to St. Joseph for the defeat of the culture of death's "right to work for less" proposal which Oklahoma voters will decide on September 25th. The nine days of prayer and good works will begin on Monday, September 17th, and end on Election Day, September 25th.

Novena Prayers

Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us according as we hope in thee.

Remember, St. Joseph, most humble and loving protector of all workers, that no one ever had recourse to your protection or asked your aid without obtaining relief. Confiding therefore in your goodness, we come before you and pray to you. Graciously receive our petition for the defeat of state question 695, for the protection of all workers, the advancement of justice, and the victory of Christ's reign over all the earth. Holy Joseph, help the helpless, comfort the dying, bring justice to the poor, and peace to all nations.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our shield against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits which prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

O Christ God, Lord of Glory, who gave us joy and blessing from your Mother's womb, have mercy on us and save us.
