Prayer to St. Joseph. “Hail, Guardian of the redeemer, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God en-trusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man. Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen”
