Ave Maria Meditations
To St. Joseph of Cupertino: Dear Holy One, purify my heart, transform it, and make it like yours, instill in me your fervor, your wisdom, and your faith. Show your kindness by helping me and I will strive to imitate your virtues.
O God, who has appointed to draw all to your only-begotten Son, lifted upon the earth on the Cross, grant us that, by the merits and examples of your Seraphic Confessor Joseph, overcoming all earthly lusts, we may deserve to come to Him, who lives with you and reigns with you forever and ever. Amen.
