Prayer to Saint Joseph

        O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in thee all my interests and desires. O thou Saint Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful intercession, and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee, and Jesus asleep in thy arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near thy heart.  Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.  Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me.  R. Amen.
