Prayer to St. Joseph

O Blessed St. Joseph, we honour you as the most watchful guardian of the Holy Family and faithful spouse of Mary the Mother of God. It was your privelege to diligently protect Jesus and Mary while they were under your care on earth. With confidence in your powerful intercession before the throne of God, we ask you to obtain our requests. (In silence mention your requests.) Protect us, our families and friends from all spiritual and physical harm. Teach us your virtues of humility, obedience, prudence and patience. Help us to be pure in our thoughts, words, and actions. Assist us to fulfil with joy the duties and responsibilities of our states in life. Be our constant guide in our daily activities so that we may be called "upright" before God as you were (cf. Matthew 1:19). Strengthened by your example, may we live holy lives so that we may die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.
(Andreina Bologna Brann and Fr. Claudio Piccinini, C.P.)
