“I Messed Up My Manhood”: How Devotion to St. Joseph Saved Fr. Donald Calloway’s Life
Do you have a relationship with St. Joseph?
The author of Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Fatherexplains how St. Joseph contributed to his conversion and why this our world needs this saint today.
“I needed a lot of help and healing because I messed up my life. And I’m a guy, so I messed up my manhood. I really jacked it up with a lot of immoral living and bad things,” he said.
“I needed a model. I needed somebody I could look to to champion manhood for me–what it really means to be a man. So these little Filipino women who helped me convert–they showed me St. Joseph. They got me praying novenas to him and everything. That helped me tremendously.”
The guys also discuss these topics:
• Why St. Jospeh is “the Terror of Demons”
• Why St. Joseph is a model for all men today
• The Year of St. Joseph
• The 33 Day Consecration to St. Joseph

Never-Failing Protection Prayer to St. Joseph:
O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your divine son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss his fine head for me, and ask him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us.
