Prayers to St. Joseph

  • Memorare to St. Joseph

    Remember, O Most Chaste Spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

    Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, my spiritual father, and beg your protection. O Foster Father of the Redeemer, despise not my petitions, but in your goodness hear and answer me. Amen.

  • Prayer Before Work to St. Joseph the Worker

    O Glorious Saint Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work in a spirit of penance for the expiation of my many sins; to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations; to work with thankfulness and joy, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God; to work with order, peace, moderation, and patience, never shrinking from weariness and trials; to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, keeping unceasingly before my eyes death and the account that I must give of time lost, talents unused, good omitted, and vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. 

    All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thy example, O Patriarch, Saint Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen. (Composed by Pope St. Pius X)

  • Prayer to the Sleeping St. Joseph

    O St. Joseph, you are a man greatly favored by the Most High. The angel of the Lord appeared to you in dreams, while you slept, to warn you and guide you as you cared for the Holy Family. You were both silent and strong, a loyal and courageous protector. Dear St. Joseph, as you rest in the Lord, confident in his absolute power and goodness, look upon me. Please take my need into your heart, dream of it, and present it to your Son (mention your request). Help me then, good St. Joseph, to hear the voice of God, to arise, and to act with love. I praise and thank God with joy. Saint Joseph, I love you. Amen.

  • Prayer to the Guardian of the Church

    Loving Father, thank You for the gift of Saint Joseph as the guardian and protector of all believers. To you, O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our tribulations, and having implored the help of your holy spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also. By that charity with which you were united to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by the fatherly affection with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we ask and humbly pray that you would look graciously upon the inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased with his Precious Blood, and assist us in our needs by your power and strength. Most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, protect the chosen people of Jesus Christ. Keep far from us, most loving father, all blight of error and corruption. Mercifully assist us from heaven, most mighty defender, in our conflicts with the powers of darkness, and even as of old you rescued the Child Jesus from the supreme peril of His life, so now defend God’s Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Keep us one and all under your continual protection that we may be supported by your example and your assistance. Pray for us to be able to lead a holy life, die a happy death, and come at last to the possession of everlasting blessedness in heaven. Amen.

  • Prayer to St. Joseph for a Happy Death

    Most glorious Saint Joseph, blessed spouse of Mary, you who merited to be chosen as the guardian of the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, and who, whilst embracing Him affectionately did have a foretaste of the bliss of heaven, I beseech you, obtain for me full pardon of my sins and the grace of imitating your virtues so that I may ever walk in the path that leads to eternal happiness. As you had the privilege of having Jesus and Mary by your deathbed, and in their arms did breathe forth your soul, I earnestly pray you to protect me from the enemies of my soul in that last moment, so that consoled by the sweet hope of Heaven, I may expire pronouncing the most Holy names of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Amen.
