Ad te, beate Ioseph – Prayer to St. Joseph

March 20th, 2017 by Gabriel McAuliffe

Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary, be with us this day.

You protected and cherished the Virgin;
loving the Child Jesus as your Son,
you rescued Him from the danger of death.

Defend the Church, the household of God,
purchased by the blood of Christ.

Guardian of the Holy Family,
be with us in our trials.

May your prayers obtain for us
the strength to flee from error
and wrestle with the powers of corruption
so that in life we may grow in holiness
and in death rejoice in the crown of victory.

Amen.

From the Handbook of Indulgences, Catholic Book Publishing Corp, 1992.
