    Please, will you pray through the intercession of St. Joseph the Worker for my young brother, Joseph? His 6 years in the Air Force is up, and he has been accepted into the FAA to be an air traffic controller, following in our dad's footsteps. Now, he is waiting to hear which tower throughout the U.S. he will be hired to. This means he could end up here, at his first choice, living near me and my sister and dad, or he could end up across the entire country alone.

    When he visited for Christmas, he went to Confession and Mass with us for the first time in years. He's been surrounded by Godless peers keeping him hopping from party to party, excessively drinking and engaging in a very worldly way of life. But he is such a good person with a sensitive heart, who used to pray the rosary on his own as a child and decided in Medjugorje at age 12 that he'd be a priest. To this day, though he no longer knows what to believe in besides that there is a God, he tears up when I talk about Medjugorje.

    Of course if it were up to me, I'd choose for him to work here so my sister and I can keep working on him spiritually, but I know God's ways are not our ways. So I ask you to pray that God will call him to the place where he will have the best chance of returning to the Faith.

    Will pray to St Joseph for your brother Joseph.

    Yesterday the Lord showed me something amazing. Maybe others are aware of this but to me it was a revelation.

    I have due to Gods grace been able to increase my prayer life, and I know the Lord hears our prayers, however I sometimes wonder why even small requests (for graces and conversions) accompanied by much daily prayer, seem to applied by God, to other areas in the souls life or even to other souls.

    The Lord allowed me to understand the following... The grace of conversion for any particular soul is different and unique to each individual soul. And our prayers are placed by God in the areas of the souls life which need repair or strengthening which to us may look to be unimportant, because we don't see all interconnecting webs that God sees.
    For example I have been praying for a particular family members conversion. The conversion has not taken place yet, however other things have changed. This family member is very lovable but has a potty mouth, gets destressed easily, has little patience and other not so flattering characteristics. The conversion has not occurred but the potty mouth has gone! patience has increased and distress over little things has decreased, and other natural graces have increased.
    God showed me that He uses our prayers in ways that benefit each soul on their journey to Him and maybe God needs to apply the prayers to others that surround the one we are praying for.
    I know this has really nothing to do with your brother Joseph's situation, hopefully it may help someone.
    May St Joseph the Glory of domestic life, continue to watch over your brother Joseph and your entire family.
    Btw, I really enjoy your posts. God bless

    Thank you Josephite, for your input.
