Prayer to Saint Joseph
Remember, most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, my loving protector, Saint Joseph, that no one ever had recourse to your protection or asked for your aid without obtaining relief.
Confiding, therefore, in your goodness, I come before you and humbly implore you.
Despise not my petitions, foster-father of the Redeemer, but graciously receive them.
Prayer to Saint Joseph from the United States Bishops
To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our tribulation, and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.
Through that charity which bound you
to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal lovewith which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance
which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood,and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.
O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness.
As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid,we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness,
and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven.
