  Prayer to St. Joseph  


To you, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our affliction, and having asked the help of Mary,

your holy spouse, we now confidently pray that you also take us under your protection.

By that charity which united you to the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God,

 and by that fatherly love with which you cherished the Child Jesus,

we humbly pray that you will graciously look upon that inheritance which

Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood and will assist us in our need

 by your power and strength.


Defend, O watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen offspring of Jesus Christ.

Aid us from on high, valiant defender in this conflict with the powers of darkness.

 Even as of old you rescued the Child Jesus from the peril of his life,

so now defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity.

Shield us ever under your patronage so that, imitating your example and strengthened by your help,

we may live a holy life, die a happy death and attain everlasting bliss in heaven. 




St. Joseph's Feast Day is March 19th
