Prayer to St Joseph

To you, O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our tribulations, and while imploring the aid of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also. By that love which united you to the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and by the fatherly affection with which you did embrace the Infant Jesus, we humbly beseech you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased with His Blood and to help us in our necessities, by your powerful intercession.

Protect, O most provident Guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen children of Jesus Christ; ward off from us, O most loving father, all taint of error and corruption; graciously assist us from Heaven, O most powerful protector, in our struggle with the powers of darkness; and as you did once rescue the Child Jesus from imminent peril to His life, so now defend the Holy Church of God from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity.

Shield each one of us with your unceasing patronage that, imitating your example and supported by your aid, we may be enabled to live a good life, die a holy death, and secure everlasting happiness in Heaven.
