Prayer to St. Joseph

Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary,
be with us this day.
You protected
and cherished the Virgin;
loving the Child Jesus as your Son,
you rescued Him from the danger of death.
Defend the Church, the household of God,
purchased by the blood of Christ.

Guardian of the Holy Family,
be with us in our trials.
May your prayers obtain for us the
strength to flee from error and
wrestle with the powers of corruption
so that in life we may grow in holiness
and in death rejoice in the crown of victory.
