Seven Sundays Devotion to St. Joseph

The Seven Sundays in honor of St. Joseph are observed in the following manner: Holy Communion is received (or the Act of Spiritual Communion is recited) in his honor on seven consecutive Sundays (beginning January 31).  The remaining Sundays would be Feb. 7, 14, 21, 28, March 7, and March 14. The format is the same on each Sunday:  the sorrow and joy of St. Joseph is announced; a Scripture passage related to this sorrow and joy is read, followed by a meditation; and ending with the Litany of St. Joseph.

An excellent means of obtaining special favors through the intercession of St. Joseph is to honor his seven sorrows and seven joys by the devotion of the Seven Sundays. This devotion may be practiced at any time of the year, but fervent clients of St. Joseph like to venerate him especially on the seven Sundays preceding his feast. Then they more confidently hope to obtain some particular favor; often the favors they receive are greater than they had expected. St. Teresa of Avila tells us that St. Joseph frequently obtained for her much greater favors than those for which she had petitioned.
