Prayer to Saint Joseph
To you, O Blessed Joseph, close tribulation and recourse, and confident after that invoke thy patronage of Thy Holy Bride.
That sacred bond of charity, that you to the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and for the fatherly love that you brought the child Jesus, concerns, we beseech Thee, with benign eye the beloved inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by his Blood, and with your help thou power to help our needs.
Protect, O provident guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen offspring of Jesus Christ away from us, or beloved Father, errors and vices which infect the world; propitious assist us from heaven in our struggle with the powers of darkness, or our strong protector: and didst save from death as a time threatened the life of the little baby Jesus, so now defend God's Holy Church from the snares and hostile to any adversity, and stretch out over each of us evermore, your patronage, so in your example and by your help, we can live righteously, and godly die to achieve eternal bliss in heaven. Amen.
Closing of the Holy Mantle
O Glorious Patriarch St. Joseph, who by God you have been placed at the head and guardian of the holiest of families, be pleased that I had from the sky guardian of my soul, one that should be received under the mantle of your patronage.
I, from this moment, you elect a father, a protector, a guide, and place it under your special care my soul, my body, what I have and what I am, my life and my death.
Look at me as your son, defend me from all my enemies, visible and invisible, assist me in all the necessities: console me in all the bitterness of life, but especially in the agonies of death.
Are targeting a word for me at this amiable Redeemer, who didst bring baby on your arms, to the glorious Virgin, of which you were beloved Spouse.
Obtain for me the blessings that you see be beneficial to my true good, for my eternal salvation, and I will endeavor not to make me unworthy of your special patronage. Amen.
