Prayer to St. JosephO Glorious Saint Joseph, you were chosen by God to be the foster father of Jesus, the most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, and the head of the Holy Family. You have been chosen by Christ’s Vicar as the heavenly Patron and Protector of the Church founded by Christ.

Protect the Sovereign Pontiff and all bishops and priests united with him. Be the protector of all who labor for souls amid the trials and tribulations of this life; and grant that all peoples of the world may be docile to the Church without which there is no salvation.

Dear Saint Joseph, accept the offering I make to you. Be my father, protector, and guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me purity of heart and a love for the spiritual life. After you example, let all my actions be directed to the greater glory of God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and your own paternal heart. Finally, pray for me that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death.

  10. The line in the prayer – “Protect the Sovereign Pontiff and all bishops and priests united with him. ” That is a recent alteration. The line, in the ancient prayer says, “Do thou shield with thy truly paternal love especially the Supreme Pontiff and all the bishops and priests who are in union with the HOLY SEE OF PETER” – One need not be in union with a pope – particularly this pope – who just can’t seem to make up his mind about much of anything.
