To St. Joseph
Glorious St. Joseph, Obedient Guardian of God’s Treasure, we Your children reverently bow to You, asking for the grace that You can attain us.
Safeguard the Universal Church of Christ, so that the Truth of Christian faith may dwell in the hearts of God’s children and may be welcomed in the hearts of men and women of good will.
Safeguard the Family, the first domestic Church, so that the spousal union and the fruits of a holy love may be protected and loved, defended and respected, preserved and never be violated.
Safeguard the sacredness of Life against every human selfishness, so that Life, the gift of the Father, may be loved and preserved, starting from the natural conception for as long as God wills.
Glorious St. Joseph, teach us to live in holy purity, in living obedience and profound humility, to give sheen to the Christian faith, to treasure it in Truth and to make it welcomed in those who are animated by good will.
Glorious St. Joseph, help us, for the triumph and the victory of Baby Jesus.
