Prayer to Saint Joseph

Prayer to Saint Joseph

Joseph, it was to you that the Father entrusted his Son and the Virgin Mother. Continue to be for us a sign of the Father's love in the Church, Mary's family today.

By the inspiration of your faith and love, draw our community closer to Mary, our Mother, and to Christ, the source of our unity.

Form us in the ways of work as you formed Christ, so that we may labor for the building up of the city of God.

Teach us a profound respect for the mystery of creation and a reverence for the Father's presence in the material world around us.

Share with us your intimate love of Mary. Give us the joy of growing in our devotion to her and to her Family, and pray that we may bear witness to this devotion in our lives this day.
