Blessed be Emmanuel whom you carried in your arms, O Joseph.
Blessed be Mary ever Virgin your beloved spouse.
Blessed be you, O Joseph, accompanied at the last moment of your life by Jesus and Mary to that Eternal Kingdom prepared for us from all eternity.
St. Joseph, protector of the dying, we supplicate you for all the dying, and beg your assistance in the hour of our own death. You merited a happy passing by a holy life, and in your last hour you had the ineffable consolation of being assisted by Jesus and Mary. Deliver us from sudden death; obtain for us the grace to imitate you in life, to detach our heart from everything worldly and daily to gather treasures of virtue for the moment of our own death.
