The Consecration to St. Joseph for Children and Families: 33-Day Family Prayer Routine to Build Holier Families by Fr. Donald Calloway and Scott L. Smith

    In this post you will learn

A family consecrated is a family saved! Consecrate your families to St. Joseph with this new book I co-authored with Fr. Donald Calloway! 

Entrust your family -- like God, Himself, did -- to the protection of St. Joseph. Hide your families from Satan within St. Joseph's cloak. And be perfect parents! St. Joseph circumscribes and surrounds all of our weaknesses and inadequacies as parents and supports us as the Pillar of Families! 

Want a holier, more prayerful family? Here's the 33-day prayer routine by co-authors Fr. Donald Calloway and, yours truly, Scott L. Smith. Copies available to purchase HERE from Marian Press. 

Fr. Donald Calloway's original book, Consecration to St. Joseph, sold almost 2 million copies worldwide during the Year of St. Joseph. The #1 question he kept getting asked? When is the children's version coming out?

Video Introduction from Fr. Donald Calloway

Here's a video from Father Donald Calloway's introducing this new book, Consecration to St. Joseph for Children and Families:

This is ideal as an Advent and Christmas family prayer routine. Want to build a holier family? The Consecration ends on December 30, the Feast of the Holy Family! How perfect is that? Consecrations also end on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, St. Joseph the Worker, and the other feasts of St. Joseph -- see the full List of Dates below:  

We created a table-top Calendar to go with the family Consecration to St. Joseph. We wanted to spark the children's imaginations visually and give them something to focus on. 

Also, there are STICKERS! One for each day. Kids can take turns putting on the sticker of the day. 

Here's a video of Fr. Donald Calloway introducing the Calendar:

Here are some more calendar images:

Thanks to the amazing Chris Lewis of Baritus Catholic for designing this beautiful calendar! I always loved the Candyland game board as a kid. It really sparked my imagination. So I asked Christ to design something in that grain. He nailed it! 

Why Consecrate Your Family to St. Joseph?

In just a few words? BECAUSE GOD DID. God entrusted the Holy Family to St. Joseph. We should entrust our families to St. Joseph, too!

Families are under attack! 

Our Lady of Fatima warned that the "The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about marriage and family." The battle is underway, and we need Jesus' own champion, St. Joseph.

To preserve and protect our families, we need to be perfect parents. Really. I mean it. Perfect. "Be ye, perfect, as your Father in Heaven in perfect" (Mt 5:48).

But how? How is that possible? 

St. Joseph, the Pillar of Families! St. Joseph will cover all our weaknesses and inadequacies as parents with his cloak. St. Joseph will hide our children from Satan, just as he hid the Holy Family, with this cloak. 

This is the purpose of the consecration! Entrust your family to St. Joseph just like God entrusted the Holy Family to St. Joseph ... and do it soon.
