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
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.
