This prayer was from my mother’s family, taught to her by her father, and other antecedents, I feel sure.
Prayer to St. Joseph
March 19, 2009
Glorious St. Joseph,
Beloved foster father of Jesus,
Beloved spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Holy Patron of the universal church,
I choose thee this day to be my special patron,
Master and conductor of my honor and property,
my life and my death.
Please grant to me the inestimable privilege of
living and dying, like thee,
In the love of Jesus and Mary. Amen.
