Ave Maria Meditations
Most watchful Guardian of the Holy Family, protect the chosen people of Jesus Christ; keep far from us, most loving father, all blight of error and corruption. Mercifully assist us from heaven, most mighty defender, in this our conflict with the powers of darkness; and, even as of old you rescued the child Jesus from the supreme peril of His life, so now defend God’s church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity.
Keep us one and all under your continual protection, so that we may be supported by your example and your assistance, may be enabled to lead a holy life, die a happy death and come at last to the possession of everlasting blessedness in heaven. Amen.
Saint Joseph: pray for us!
