Prayers to St Joseph
You whom God’s grace has blessed.
The Saviour rested in your arms and grew before your eyes.
You are blessed among all men and Jesus,
the divine child of your virginal wife, is blessed.
St. Joseph, given as father to the Son of God,
pray for us in our worries of family, health and work, until our last days,
and deign to help us at the hour of our death.
Prayer of Pope Francis in the year of St. Joseph
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
