Prayer to St. Joseph by Pope Leo XIII
To thee, O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our tribulations, and, whilst imploring the aid of thy most holy spouse, we confidently thy patronage also.
By that love which united thee to the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God and by the Fatherly affection with which thou didst embrace the infant Jesus, we humbly beseech thee graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by His Blood, and to help us in our necessities by thy powerful intercession.
Protect, O most provident guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen children of Jesus Christ. Ward off from us, O most loving Father, all taint of error and corruption. Graciously assist us from heaven, O most powerful protector, in our struggle with the powers of darkness.
And as thou didst once rescue the child Jesus from imminent peril to His life, so now defend the Holy Church of God from the snares of Her enemies, and from all adversities.
Shield each one of us with thy unceasing patronage so that imitating thy example and supported by thy aid we may be able to live a holy life, die a happy death and secure everlasting happiness in Heaven.
