Prayer to St. Joseph

Prayer to St. Joseph

Oh St. Joseph whose protection
is so great, so strong,so prompt
before the throne of God, I
place in you all my interests
and desires.  Oh St. Joseph do
assist me by your powerful
intercession and obtain for me
from your Divine Son all
spiritual blessings through Jesus
Christ, Our Lord, so that having
engaged here below your
heavenly power I may offer my
Thanksgiving and Homage to
the most loving of fathers. Oh
St. Joseph, I never weary
contemplating you and Jesus
asleep in your arms.  I dare not
approach while He reposes
near your 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.  St. Joseph, Patron of
departing souls, pray for us.
Amen.

Story of St. Joseph

St. Joseph
Patron of Fathers, the Church
(First Century)

Joseph was a just man, who worked as a carpenter in the little village of Nazareth.  According to the New Testament, he was a descendant from the royal house of David and betrothed to Mary during the time of the Annunciation.

When Joseph found out that Mary had conceived a child before they were married, he was greatly distressed.  Because he was a kind man, he wished to end their betrothal quietly, and spare Mary any shame, but an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream to guide him and to calm his fears.  The angel told Joseph that Mary's child had been conceived by the holy Spirit and was the long awaited Messiah who would save his people from their sins.  Moved and overjoyed at this news, Joseph, without hesitation, obeyed God and took Mary as his wife.

Joseph proved himself to be the faithful protector of Mary and her Son.  He cared for Mary during the birth of Jesus, and obeyed God's angel once more when he took his family on a difficult journey to Egype to escape Herod, who wished to murder Jesus.

As Jesus' father, it was Joseph's duty to guide Jesus and educate Him on the scriptures.  Because God chose Joseph as the steadfast guardian of Jesus on earth, he is also patron of the Universal Church as well as the special protector of fathers of families.  Joseph is also considered the patron of departing souls, as it is believed that Joseph died in the arms of Jesus and Mary, years before Jesus began his preaching.  He is often invoked by those seeking a peaceful passing.
