Prayer

Glorious Saint Joseph, first man to love Mary and hold Jesus in your arms, accept the prayers we now offer to honor the almighty God and to ask his blessing upon us, We pray that all the families will be spiritual and physically protected through life, and guided to fulfill wisely and with love the vocations God has given us.

Bless our community; bless God‘s family of faith in the Church throughout the world; bless the good works we do to be faithful followers of your foster son, Jesus. We pray especially that God will grant us the favor we ask, or if it is his will, one that he knows is better for us.

Alternative Prayer

In your loving Care which goes beyond our understanding, O God, you chose Blessed Joseph to be the husband of your most holy Mother. As we honor him on earth as our protector, let him intercede for us in heaven. You who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

Final Prayer

O Blessed Saint Joseph, tender-hearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, Chaste spouse of the Mother of God , I pray and beseech you to offer to God the Father my praise to him through his divine Son who died on the cross and rose again to give us, sinners a new life. Through the holy name of Jesus, pray with us that we may obtain from the eternal Father the favor we ask. . .[pause]... We have been unfaithful to the unfailing love of God the Father, beg of Jesus mercy for us. Amid the splendor of God‘s loving presence, do not forget the sorrows of those who suffer, those who pray , and those who weep. By your prayers and those of your most holy Spouse, our Blessed Lady, may the love of Jesus answer our call of confident hope. Amen.
