ST. JOSEPH

Our Patron

Oh, St. Glorious Joseph,

whose protection is so great,

so strong, so prompt

before the throne of God.

I place in you all my interests and desires.

Oh, 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.

Oh, St. Joseph,

I never weary of 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 me.

Prayer Before the Crucifix

Most high,

glorious God

enlighten the darkness of my heart

and give me, Lord,

a correct Faith,

a certain Hope,

a perfect Charity,

sense and knowledge,

so that I may carry out

Your holy and true command.

St. Francis of Assisi
