Prayer to St. Joseph.

Mother/Wife: We come to you, Joseph, with love and prayer.

We come to you, Joseph, with the wounds of Covid19,

A model of sacred silence, gentleness, and patience,

And a worthy spouse of the Virgin Mother.


Father/Husband: We greet you, Joseph, the image of the Father.

We greet you, Joseph, the Foster Father of God the Son,

A silent guardian of the mystery of the Holy Trinity,

And a faithful guardian of the universal Church.


Child/Children: We embrace you, Joseph, the mirror of humility and obedience.

We embrace you, Joseph, Father of all the faithful,

A privileged servant to touch the Word made flesh,

And a righteous man among men.


Family Together: Join us, Joseph, to your family with Jesus and Mary.

Join us, Joseph, in our families with the heart of a Father,

A skilled man to join what is apart with your blessed hands,

And a hardworking provider to your family.


Father/Husband:  Bring us, Joseph, to the Eternal Father who chose you.

Mother/Wife: Bring us, Joseph, to that ardent love of the Son, and Spirit,

A sanctified intercessor in our needs on this life,

And in your holy arms forever we shall find sweet repose.


Child/Children:  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

Family Together: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.

Family Together: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
