Most Blessed St. Joseph, master of the hidden life and great chief of the ” Apostleship of Prayer”, you have the key of the Sacred Heart, Which found Its rest on you and loved you with the devotion of a child. Teach us to live, as you did live, a life of prayer, to love God’s Will, and to value the things of time as we shall value them in eternity.
Vouchsafe, O holy Joseph, to be mindful of us and to intercede for us with Him Who once called you father; direct us in the path of life, and assist us, with Mary and the Angels, at the hour of our death. Amen.
St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us.
